What is Blacksmithing?

Blacksmithing is the art of crafting items from wrought iron by using various tools to forge metal. Blacksmiths typically use wrought iron or steel, but they sometimes use other metals to create a range of objects, such as gates, railings, light fixtures, sculptures, tools, and more.

To shape metal, blacksmiths will heat pieces of wrought iron or steel until the metal becomes soft enough for shaping with hand tools.

Unlike machining, forging is a process in which smiths shape metal by hammering it instead of removing material. Even when blacksmiths punch or cut metal, they usually rearrange the metal around the hole rather than drilling it out as a swarf.

Blacksmith and Forging Experiences

Experiences UK is excited to offer a wide range of Blacksmithing and Forging Experiences. These hands-on sessions will not only teach you new skills but also enable you to create something truly impressive to take home.

All courses provide participants with an introduction to general blacksmithing skills and enable them to make something to take home. With our One Day courses available in various locations, you're sure to find one near you.

If you're based in Kent, our One Day Blacksmithing Course will equip you with all the skills to make your own fire poker, key fob, and hook to take home with you. You'll have access to your own forge, anvil, vice, and set of tools.

If you're trying this for the first time, our Three and Five-hour taster sessions are the perfect starting point. In our Three Hour Taster Session, you'll delve into the ancient art of forging and step into the realm of metal-bending mastery. You'll create your own bottle opener and drinks holder at our location on a picturesque farm estate in Maldon, Essex.

One of our five hour Taster Sessions takes place in Hereford. This family-run forge is located in the countryside and is one of the best places to learn how to forge or expand your skills. In this workshop, you'll take away a beautifully crafted piece of ironwork, such as a Rose, Boot scraper, wall coat rack, candlestick, and more.
