Why buy from us?
Do you want to experience the traditional artisan work of a blacksmith? Then, join Richard at his forge in the Cumbrian countryside for a full-day course. You'll have the opportunity to fabricate your own forged item to take home with you. Richard is a passionate blacksmith who has been making a living out of metalwork since 2009. Now, he wants to pass on his skills to students who come to his purpose-built training forge. His forge is hidden away amongst the fields and farmland around Brampton, just northeast of Carlisle. Here, you'll find traditional machines and tools, including a double hearth coke-fire forge, a propane gas furnace, and a classic Massey 2Cwt power hammer for heavy forging work. Additionally, there are lots of handmade blacksmith tools made by Richard himself. Everything you need to forge metal is available at Middle Row Forge. On the day, you'll have the chance to choose from a variety of project options that are achievable for novice blacksmiths. You can create something practical like a hand tool, a fire poker, a bottle opener, or something purely artistic. Then, Richard will teach you how to heat, shape and manipulate the metal to your chosen form. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and get properly stuck in as you taper, bend, twist, and rivet the hot metal in the hands-on workshop. By the end of your blacksmith experience day in Cumbria, you'll have a hand-crafted piece of ironwork to show off to your friends and family. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from a blacksmith who's infectiously enthusiastic about his ironwork. It's a lovely day in a beautiful place, and you'll come away with a newfound appreciation for this traditional trade. Sign up now to create your own piece of history!
