What you'll do

This is a practical hands on Blacksmith taster session. You will make three small items such as a forge welded heart, a poker, toasting fork, small hooks or key rings for example. Whilst doing so you will learn different forging techniques as well as how to work with the fire and how to use different tools and there names. Sessions are kept small there is a maximum number of 2 students in a session, this means that you get the most of my time. A session will last around 6 hours, so there's plenty of forge time to enjoy.

Rich

I have been a blacksmith for over 15 years and taught in colleges, schools (as far as Switzerland up in the alps), muesums, music festivals including Glastonbury. I have made ironwork for English Heritage and I have also made sculptural work for Chelsea Flower Show. Until recently I have always rented a workshop which has been quite limiting, but now I have bought my own workshop and wish to share my passion for making stuff out of iron.

Where you'll be

The blacksmith work will take place in my traditional stone barn, it feels like stepping back in time. The workshop is situated next to my traditional Irish cottage which I am restoring which is in the Glen of Aherlow at the foot of the Galtee mountains, it has the most amazing views.
