Blacksmithing Experiences

Voucher holders: please click here

An award-winning Experience at the Blacksmith’s Shop in Redbourne is the perfect introduction to the traditional art of blacksmithing. Whether you’ve tried your hand at smithing before, or it’s just something you’ve always wanted to do, these workshops offer the ideal place to hone your skills, with a very hands-on, immersive approach from the very start. Anything you make is yours to take home with you! 

Both half day (10am-2pm) and full day (9am - 4pm) courses are available. In order to purchase, order a voucher via my shop. I will then send you a voucher with a year's expiry for you to redeem against a date that suits you (availability permitting, my calendar is below). 

Full day experience (1 or 2 people):

The cost of the course is £230 for one person or £390 for two people. This includes a full day of private tuition (9am – 4pm), all materials, safety equipment, and refreshments.

What will you learn?

  • The day starts with health and safety introduction

  • The morning will be spent learning and refining your skills, including fire management. Skills I can teach include: splitting, forging, bending, twisting, punching, fire welding, heat treating, and joining the mild steel

  • The afternoon is then spent using hammer and tongs to bring your own ideas to life

  • The full day course enables a greater depth of skills to be learnt and more complex items to be forged. 

I do not offer set courses where pre-defined pieces are made - you are encouraged to choose what you would like to forge on the day. I firmly believe that the best way of learning is by doing, so I ensure that anything that is made on an experience will be forged entirely by the participant, with absolutely no "taking over" or "tweaking"; but instead with support and guidance at every step!

Regrettably, I am not permitted to make anything with visitors that could be classified as a 'weapon'. 

Courses can be rescheduled but only if I am given at least a month’s notice. Please see my cancellation and refund policy. 


Please note that if your own ideas or designs use a lot of material then you may be charged extra. If you also plan to use a specific material I will also need to know beforehand.

For insurance reasons, I regret that I am unable to teach anybody under the age of 15.



Redbourne is a beautiful village in the heart of North Lincolnshire. The forge is easily accessible from the A15 and is easy to find – the horse on the top of the forge is hard to miss! The postcode is DN21 4QJ.
