Blacksmith workshop

Back in June we organised a day learning to hit hot metal with hammers. These are photos from the day.

Im jumpin jack flash, Its a gas! gas! gas!

I like to think everyone had a good day, learnt some new skills and went away with a few items forged in the depths of Mount Doom, or Kingstone Maurward college to give it it’s full name.   Thanks very much to our Master Blacksmith, Brian Hill, who, once he was over the shock of having a full workshop to deal with proved to be an excellent tutor for the day, he even provided biscuits.

Anyone who is interested in doing this should check the Kingston Maurward College website for details of upcoming courses in Blacksmithing or Welding
