Ce vei face

We'll start the day with looking at how steel can be shaped and formed in fire to create the most amazing artwork. Then we'll slowly introduce you to the craft by lighting the forge. We'll then learn basic hammerwork techniques to draw square and round tapers out of solid steel bars and create graceful curves to make a hook or poker. For those with a keen eye for design we'll design a unique piece of metal art for you to work on for the rest of the day.
Other things to note
If you have ever fancied trying your hand at the ancient craft of blacksmithing this is for you. No need at all for previous experience, just a desire to learn how to forge and form steel. This day course is particularly suited to those with an artistic inclination who like making things.

I am a professional blacksmith who has created many beautiful pieces of art in Hastings and the surrounding areas. This has included a creative and oversized feather in our local park; a giant, stylised tree at a local primary school as well as a recently designed huge metal mermaid for an artist in Bexhill. My work is seen and appreciated across East Sussex and beyond.

We'll do our blacksmithing course in the Thirsty Bear Forge, a modern well equipped forge on our small holding just outside Hastings. Equipped with the essential tools of a coke forge, anvil, hammers, drill and welder we have everything we need at our fingertips to make the most beautiful artistic metalwork.

What a wonderful experience for my son! He loved his day, particularly as Jake gave him lots of freedom to create without loads of instructing but still supported him fully. He has made some brilliant items which he is very proud of. Would definitely recommend!

The experience was unique. Jake was warm and friendly and very encouraging and enabled me to learn the craft quickly i went home with a terrific piece of work which i had created. Couldn't recommend Jake highly enough.

We had such an amazing day at Thirsty Bear Forge. Jake took us through the theory of blacksmithing and introduced us steadily to a range of techniques. He‘s so friendly and knowledgeable, we felt really comfortable and at ease which is lovely when you’re starting something totally new. Jake and his family were so warm and welcoming and the lunch spread was beautiful, so were the many cups of tea which kept us going! We came away with some cracking pimp canes (fire pokers), some homegrown courgettes a couple of other metal experiments! I wasn’t expecting to be able to make anything half decent but they turned out looking really great! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys being hands on and crafty (and doesn’t mind getting dirty and sweaty!) It was a really special birthday surprise and we would love to come back again. Thanks Jake! Emma, Mittal and Jenson
