The 1910 Co. is an becoming an artisan hub and a place where the old crafts are preserved and utilised in todays throw away society.

That is why the 1910 Co. is now offering in the artisan space traditional Metalworking courses in a recently restored 1880s blacksmith shop in Wildes Meadow NSW. Here you will learn about the Blacksmiths craft in the traditional sense, as spot welding doesn’t exist here. Just hot forging, riveting, collaring and how to manage hot steel with a set of tongs and a London Pattern anvil.

Most of the Blacksmith tools you’ll be using are original too, sourced form around the country. We keep our courses small too for one on one tuition and we’re running a selection of the these courses throughout 2018. So far, they’ve been very

 

In fact the very first 1910 Blacksmith classes in the restored shop took place in February this year. I look forward to seeing you at one our classes very soon. You can direct with me stephen.hogwood@optusnet.com.au and we’re now taking bookings for September 2018, but numbers are strictly limited, so it’s first in best dressed.

Everything is supplied too, aprons, safety goggles, gloves, steel and all equipment, along with light refreshments, and are courses are designed for beginners and or budding blacksmiths. The full day courses cover forge control, hammer and tong work on the anvil, splitting, scrolling, forge welding and much more!!
