Petefire Artist Blacksmith forge in Herts at Chiswell Green, St Albans, England

All our Blacksmith Forging Experiences are now indoors at the Petefire Chiswell Green Forge – so we’re not affected by the weather!

Most of the forging experience photos are outdoors. That’s how we used to do it. It was good fun, being out in the open, but it was cold in the winter, and dates could be postponed by rain – or snow!

Another benefit from being indoors at our Chiswell Green Forge is that we can use the more powerful blacksmith forge, making the heat process quicker.

You can get more information from our forging experiences questions page.

You can book Petefire Forge Experiences here: 1 person, 2 person, 3 person, work teams forging experience or a sword forging experience.

What would I make?

People have hand forged a small knife, alternatives might be a fire poker, decorative heart, flower, toasting fork, bottle opener or a bird feeder hook.

People take their forged items home with them.
