Iron sword forging experience
I’ve been developing my Iron Sword Forging Experience over the last few months and I’m very pleased that it’s now added to the Blacksmith Forging Experiences that Petefire have on offer.
Pretty positive feedback
Various teenagers and adults have done Iron Sword Forging Experiences, they were very positive about their experiences and it was clear that it was really stimulating and there was lots of opportunities to learn techniques and discuss the history of sword making.
In this two day blacksmith forging experience you will work with Peter to hot metal forge a piece of flat bar steel into a rough sword.
The Iron Sword Forging Experiences take place at the Petefire forge in Chiswell Green, near St Albans in Hertfordshire. Here’s more information on the Petefire Forge location.
It’s a bit of a workout
It’s pretty physical and there’s a good deal of hammering involved, so we advise having at least a few days between the first and second 2 hour sessions.
We don’t have other people on our Blacksmith Forging Experiences
It would only be you and anyone you’ve brought along to do the forging experience with you, or to watch and take photos and videos.
