Weekend courses at West Dean College

I have taken part in the Made shows at West Dean College for a few years now but have recently been invited to run a few weekend courses at this hot bed of crafts education. The college is set in rolling downland with beautiful gardens and amazing glasshouses not that my students saw much of that sweating it out in the forge! The first course was a Blacksmith taster session and I can report that there are now 14 new blacksmiths in the world with a motley selection and inspiring selection of forged pokers and hooks. The next course I am running is a 2 day course with a bit more of a creative slant, details can be seen here.west-dean-forge-james-price-blacksmith
