Beginners Artistic Blacksmithing and Metal Forging

Beginners Artistic Blacksmithing and Metal Forging

Make your own Ramshead Fire Poker

Details

Adrian arrives with all the kit and sets 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.

Poker: Sunday 24 November 2019
Poker: Sunday 12 July ~ Sunday 15th November 2020
Sculptural Flower: Sun 31 May ~ Sat 10 October 2020

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, Rams Head Pokers or striking Flowers, depending on the date you choose.

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