Saturday 1st July Blade-smithing
Summary: One layer knife blades. If you would like to make a good knife blade of your own design, spend a day blacksmithing and get an insight into practical heat treatments, this is the course for you. I am a blacksmith (not a blade smith) so you will learn the ‘blacksmiths approach’ to blade smithing, basic hardening and tempering skills will be covered - same as I would do the day to day hardening of tools in the hearth without the use of gadgets. Please note: Handle making is not covered, this must be done at home. If you are thinking of going into blade-smithing on a professional level and for a more in depth program of the theory of heat treatments - UK blade-smith Owen Bush's courses come highly recommended: www.owenbush.co.uk

Sunday 2nd July Axe-making
Summary: Bring home your own hatchet / hand axe after this course which I must say is hard work – ought not be booked if you suffer from weak wrists, bad shoulders etc...! The axe is punched and drifted from solid carbon steel. Pre-shaped handles are available or you are welcome to make your own (at home)
Time: 9.00am - 6pm
