The Art of Forging

Weekend  2nd & 3rd November '19 10am - 5.30pm  

The Art of Forging Weekend- Forge your own Earrings, Bangle, Spoon. €350.

€350 includes all materials and a delicious home-made lunch each day.

Forging is the technique of shaping metal by changing the cross section using a hammer and anvil. Similar to how a blacksmith works with iron, this weekend workshop will introduce you to many of the forged forms that can be used on a jewellery scale. You will learn how to use a hammer and anvil to move metal effectively into graceful fluid lines.

Over a series of exercises you will use forging techniques to make links for a chain, forge a ring, earrings and a bangle and finish by forging a small spoon.

Gilding metal for all projects is included in your course fee. If you would like to make the Forged Spoon, or Bangle in Silver, please purchase this alongside your course fee using the dropdown menu above the Book Now button.
