Forge Experience Day- Fully Booked

21 September - 21 September 2019

A "hands on" experience of Blacksmithing under the experienced guidance of our Locksmith Demonstrator.

Set in the atmospheric Edwardian house and lockmaking workshops of the Hodson family – experience life of one of the many family businesses that made Willenhall the heart of lockmaking since the Industrial Revolution. Our Locksmith will introduce you to the forge, show you the basic  forging tools and how to use them. 

Experience lockmaking and learn how to forge a point, a flat and a bend into a piece of metal, some of the key elements to forging a padlock.

Enjoy some light refreshments as we serve up lunch and, as a souvenir of your experience, you will be able to take home a bar padlock and nails.

Please note this event is not at Black Country Living Museum, and takes place at: The Locksmith's House, 54 New Road, Willenhall, WV13 2DA
