Traditional Blacksmith Workshop
Have you ever daydreamed about working in a Forge, using only your hands and brute force to craft something practical and beautiful?
Perhaps it’s something that your ancestors did and have often wondered what it was like, Or maybe it’s a career change your looking for, but want to try it first before packing the day job in! Well here is your chance!
Finin Liam Christie is one of Irelands most renowned Blacksmiths. He has had a long and varied career, scroll down for his full bio, but his main claim to fame is that he uses only traditional methods, using sight and his hands to judge the metal, and only using time honoured methods and traditional tools. Take a workshop with Finin, in his Forge, and who knows what it will spark in you!
Finin and I are delighted to offer one, two or three day workshops, where working one-on-one with Finin you can explore this fascinating craft and create something special of your own. Be it medieval style weapons like swords and battle axes or something for the home such as fire tongs, an axe for chopping logs, barbecue tools, even a set of kitchen knives….. it is entirely up to you and your imagination !
One Day Workshop €220
Two Day Workshop €360
Three Day Workshop €530
Prices include tax, all equipment, steel/iron used in the creation of your personal work of art and you can bring a lunch (you’ll be hungry !)
Packages can be created to include accommodation and transport to and from the forge.
