Introduction to Blacksmithing
During this practical course you are encouraged to learn at your own pace to produce small decorative pieces and tools.
You will learn the skills of:
- Fire management
- Cutting and joining
As experience is gained learners are encouraged to develop their own projects.
There is no formal assessment on this course. Candidates progress at their own pace so can move on to the next scheduled course and continue to develop their skills. Once completed the Introduction candidates can progress onto the Intermediate Blacksmithing course.
