About the Event

There are 3 different times workshops - when booking please scroll down and select the time. 9.30am, 12pm and 2.30pm. 

'True North Trades' consists of a Blacksmith, Furniture Maker/Woodworker and a General Handyman, they specialise in a range of products, building talents and activities.

We're really pleased that they will be joining us at the Heritage Centre to run their metalworking workshops where you will learn the ancient art of Blacksmithing, using tools and practices that have been used for over a thousand years!

Under their expert tutelage you will learn how to heat, shape, bend and twist a piece of steel from a regular bar into a work of art that you can take home and treasure forever.  In this course we will be creating spiral candle holders from a bar of round steel.

So why not treat yourself to this great workshop - learning the traditional skill of Blacksmithing and taking away a candle holder that you have hand-made yourself.  Come along with a friend, or maybe buy the workshop experience as a unique gift for someone special.
