Co będziecie robić

A brief introduction to the basic tools and techniques of blacksmithing. Spend a day in the forge, learn the basics and take home some simple products you have made yourself. I can accommodate up to two attendees at a time.

The aim of my courses is to provide a simple introduction to the craft of blacksmithing, to hopefully demonstrate how much can be achieved with relatively simple tools and little outlay, and to pass on some skills that will last a lifetime and perhaps plant a seed that may grow and develop and perhaps “forge” a new career! And obviously, I aim to make the experience as enjoyable as possible too!

My setup here is simple – I’m afraid you’ll have to forgive my small workshop; but hopefully it may also serve to show what can be achieved “from home” for you too, if you are so inclined. From a smithy based in a double garage, I make knives and unique hand-forged blacksmith products and ship them worldwide on a daily basis, and earn enough crust to support my family, so I can certainly testify as to what is possible with a small space!

I very much look forward to meeting you, hope we can make some fantastic stuff that you can be proud of, and above all hope you enjoy your experience at Gate Foot Forge.

Despite an education in Industrial Design and a lifetime spent tinkering with things, I ended up accidentally spending 15 years as a graphic designer. Then in late 2019, fed up with staring at a computer screen, i redressed the balance a bit and allowed a hobby to run out of control!

Over the course of a few short months I began to realise my self-taught smithing skills were rather more in demand than I first thought, and within months I was shipping hand-forged products worldwide and managing an order list that was bordering on the ridiculous. Despite still suffering imposter syndrome, I slowly realised that others were keen to be introduced to this wonderful craft too; and so I tested the water with a few “experience day” bookings. Not only did these leave a big smile on customers’ faces, I realised I really enjoyed teaching too!
