Following daytime classes are on offer:
Learn how to forge a fire poker using a hammer and anvil.
This beginners class provides an excellent introduction to basic blacksmithing techniques and the use of a coke fired forge. After a short safety induction, attendees will be provided with all necessary personal protective equipment before being allocated their own forging station.
After a step by step demonstration, participants will then go on and forge their own functional fire poker with the assistance of experienced instructors. Once completed, fire pokers will be hot brushed and waxed and ready to be taken home.
Hopefully this taster will inspire students to delve deeper and maybe even enrol in a Module 1 course at Waterside.
