Our Blacksmith Experience Days take place in our Victorian forge and are lead by our experienced blacksmiths. You will learn the skills and basic techniques of the blacksmith and make your own simple hand forged object to take home. You will be shown how the forge works and will use an anvil, in what will be an extremely enjoyable yet physical experience. No previous experience is necessary.
What is included:
- Entrance into the Museum
- Tuition from an experienced blacksmith
- All materials
- Safety equipment
- Tea and coffee
Please bring your own pack lunch or purchase a light lunch in the Furniture Factory Tea Rooms (Please note our tea room will be closed November-March).
