The latest Blacksmithing class in Wildes Meadow was so much fun…


I love teaching people this ancient art, because the craft of Blacksmithing is as old as the human race. Why is it called the King of trades? Well, with out a Blacksmith you had no tools, or your machinery and tools repaired or in fact anything sharpened.

If you’d like to learn and experience this amazing trade then an 1880s Blacksmith shop in Wildes Meadow, in the Southern Highlands is the place to be – if you don’t believe me then listen to what my students had to say :-

What a fantastic day to be had at the forge with the 1910 Ironworks. Steve is a fantastic teacher of this ancient trade and very patient while I was learning the ropes. Highly recommended day out in a beautiful part of the world –

Greg Berrell – Wollongong.

“A very enjoyable day” Garry Studd – Carpenter and Cabinet maker / Bowral

“I had an amazing day and learnt so much” Dave Read / Carpenter / Robertson

…My 10 year old (Josiah) came to one of your workshops a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it! Still talks about all the things he’s going to make when he starts forging for real. Thanks for creating such a great experience for him.

I had my fisrt introduction to Blacksmithing with Steve, I highly recommend it to anyone. He is a fabulous, patient teacher, I learned heaps, and had fun doing it.
I will definitely be doing more Blacksmithing. Thanks again Steve for a fantastic day.

“Priced at only $250 inclusive of everything for the day and you also get lunch is just excellent value. You also get one on one tuition from an experienced, traditional Blacksmith, why such personal tuition? Because we always our keep classes small”
