pupils at school this can be a perfect opportunity to try their hand at
blacksmithing. Project tasks will include forging, art and design,
maths and much more. I have had excellent feedback and great results
from pupils on projects. Pupils work on projects from start to finish,
including tasks like design work, learning the basics, forging and
finishing touches like painting.
I provide all required equipment including my portable forge
and marquee. Projects can be to create a bench, gate, sign, table,
sculpture, etc. I prefer to give an hour presentation at least a week
before starting. Here I will show the students previous projects that
have been designed and made by other pupils. This gives them a better
idea of what is possible and often inspires them. I then leave them to
brainstorm ideas for what they would like to create. Once we agree on a
design the workshops will begin.
Time scale will depend on the type of project chosen. Pricing
often depends on a wide variety of factors so please contact me if you
have any queries. Most recently I have worked with the Youth Club in
Machynlleth to create two benches for the Community Gardens at the Plas.
