Do you want to experience the art of blacksmithing? You have come to the right place!
Rob is one of the few time-served blacksmiths in New Zealand. He loves sharing his passion for blacksmithing and has a deep understanding of forging. Rob has a strong cultural background and teaches with lots of enthusiasm and kiwi humour.
The forge is set in a beautiful New Zealand environment.
We run a variety of courses to suit you. The calendar and below options are a guideline of availability, please don’ t hesitate to contact us to customise your experience in the forge.
All of the below options are possible on the available dates and no previous experience is required for any of the classes. There is no minimum age, however, we do require an adult to be present and book with anyone under 16 (either as a participant of the class or a as spectator). Spectators, please select the half-day or the full-day option from the booking menu. We have a lovely ‘smoko’ room adjoining the forge where you are welcome to make yourself at home. Bring a book or perhaps some walking shoes so you can take a walk on the farm!
Provided: safety glasses and ear protection
Please bring: long trousers, sturdy shoes (no open toes)
Cancelation policy – refund or change of date is possible when booking is more than 3 weeks away. If the booking is within 3 weeks, change of date only is available. No refunds are given for no-shows (when guests don’t turn up on the day they have booked).
