Blacksmithing (Metal working)

They say that blacksmithing is the second oldest profession.

On this course you will be making simple tools that a local blacksmith would have made for his village.

After learning the basics, you will have the opportunity to make either useful tools for your own workshop or artistic, decorative items to enhance your home.

This course will also show you how to make a simple forge and bellows so you can continue your practice at home after the course ends.

This is not a high-end technical metal working course but more basic, the way it was practiced by village blacksmiths many, many years ago.
