Course summary: Bring home your own hatchet / hand axe after this blacksmithing course which I must say is hard work – ought not be booked if you suffer from weak wrists, bad shoulders etc...! The axe is forged from solid carbon steel. You will learn the ‘blacksmiths approach’ to heat treatment, basic hardening and tempering skills will be covered - same as I would do the day to day hardening of tools in the forge hearth without the use of gadgets. Pre-shaped handles are available or you are welcome to make your own (at home).
Blacksmithing techniques: drawing out (tapering), spreading, punching, sets, forging of carbon steels, heat treatments.
Time: 9.00am - 6pm
