Valentine's day is a day to celebrate love, and what better way to celebrate love than with a rose? But roses wither and die, so come make one out of steel that will last a lifetime!

This course will cover

- hammer control (when doing rough shaping of the petals and thinning of the stem)

- texturing using a cross pein hammer

- rolling using scrolling tongs

 

We will provide all the stock and materials, and there will be an experienced smith on each anvil to help you create the perfect rose, which you will take home with you for a very lucky person ;)

"Smi'da einn ox!" - Let's forge an axe!

Come and forge your own Viking Bearded Axe! We will use high carbon steel and some traditional methods to drift and forge these axes. We will also add handles so you can attack some trees with your awesome axe.

It is suggested that you first complete the beginner's course before attending this one as we will rely on some of the techniques we cover in the beginner's course.

As always lunch is included plus a whole lot of fun.

Here is a preview of what we will be doing in the course:
