Forge Experience Day

10 October 2020

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 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. Our Locksmith will introduce you to the forge, show you the basic forging tools and how to use them.

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 from a bar padlock and nails.

Course Tutor: Blacksmith & Lockmaker, Andy Middlebrook

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
