Make a day to remember with a Day at The Forge.
This is a perfect day out for 'Forge in Fire' followes who want to give Blacksmiting ago. Forge your own Axe to either used (with care) or displayed with pride! Design with our expert team a handforged Axe Head! We offer a number of designs, however we are more than happy to work with you to design your own if it is possible to be still achieved in the timeframe.
The day provides a very “hands-on” experience and you will get to forge, harden, temper and sharpen your axe. We will also help you to fit your own handle if time allows.
This is a fantastic seven hours of fun and learning, taught in a relaxed and friendly environment, where you will be made to sweat but will leave at the end of the day with an axe head that you will be proud of and take great pleasure in - along with a special story to be told.
