Blacksmithing is the art of working metal with a forge, anvil, and a hammer. By heating the metal until it is red hot (or hotter!), it can be bent and beaten into shape, eventually becoming a useful item.
We have our own forge and all the equipment we need to teach blacksmithing in Glasgow. Our instructors have undergone extensive training and are constantly working to improve their own skills and knowledge. If you want to learn how to work with metal, to make something with your own bare hands, then our courses will be perfect for you. We run afternoon and weekend courses in blacksmithing, so please have a look at what events are forthcoming, or get in touch and see about booking a session tailored specifically to you, perhaps bringing your friends along with you.
Note: we are currently in the process of redesigning our blacksmithing courses, so no purchases are available right now. Please refer to the dedicated Vanguard Centre website for more information about blacksmithing courses and activities.
