Located in Melbourne’s Inner West, we are an artist blacksmith studio with the purpose to provide an inclusive space, where people can learn and members can pursue creative metal forging using traditional and modern techniques. We also offers a wide variety of blacksmithing tools & equipment for sale.
The studio was established in 2011 by Steve Phillips (Estebaan) and delivers a wide range of courses with the help of some of the finest guest teachers from Australia and abroad. Fully equipped with traditional coke fired forges, a comprehensive selection of hand tools, a fly press and power hammer, the studio space provides a quality blacksmithing experience from beginners to advanced.
Lute joined the studio, initially looking after the administrative side of the business and now also focusing on jewellery design. Both partners are avid hikers and their love for the natural world instills a sense of urgency to look after ‘their home’ and therefore aiming to reduce Waterside’s environmental footprint by becoming carbon neutral.
