Blacksmith Courses

Have you ever wanted to learn a new skill? Are you struggling to find a great gift for a loved one? Come and have a bash at Little Duck Forge.


The dates available are flexible, courses can be run any day of the week throughout the year. All you have to do is call and book a time which is mutually agreeable. (See Calendar below)


The tutor will be Lucille, a qualified Blacksmith, and previously a Design Technology Teacher. The time will be tailored to your skills and what you would like to gain from your time in the Forge. You will get the chance to make an item to take home with you.
