Traditional Iron run a range of blacksmithing related courses during the year, from our shop at Petrie.

We cover the basics of blacksmithing, as well as more advanced workshops on Traditional joinery, knife making, Animal forms and tool making.

Advanced one on one training can be arranged, and limited workshops on Damascus pattern welding and Mokume gain will be available early next year.

If you have a group of 4 to 6 like-minded friends, I will customise a course to your requirements.

Please contact us if you are interested in a particular subject, and I will notify you when the next course will be running.
