Later in the day, you will try forging under the pneumatic hammer (just as a professional Blacksmith would) and heating your steel in a gas forge. Assistance and guidance will be provided so you have a project to take home at the end of the day.

Our Pneumatic hammer is the same type that a professional Blacksmithing workshop would use but scaled down to suit our projects.

You will need to wear:
  • long cotton pants (denim jeans are great)
  • long sleeve industrial work shirt

No matter how you choose to study, as part of this qualification you will need to undertake a supervised work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned in a classroom setting.
