Beginners Artistic Blacksmithing and Metal Forging

Beginners Artistic Blacksmithing and Metal Forging

Make your own Ramshead Fire Poker

Details

Adrian & Bill arrive early with all the kit and set it up on the cafe lawns. During first coffee & biscuits he will go through some of the exciting work he's been involved with and show the group what they might expect to make during the day.

After a safety talk and with furnaces lit Adrian will explain basic principles, the colours of hot metals, malleability, temperatures and the importance of getting just the right temperature for the right task. The group will then start with creating a point on the piece of metal, quickly moving onto curves, bends and scrolls, punching, spreading and splitting.

After practice, you should be able to make either Dragon Hooks or Ramshorn Pokers depending on the date you choose.

A unique opportunity for a really full-on day experience.
