Bladesmithing Courses

World class blade-smith Nic Westermann is running these classes at our Stepney City Farm Workshop. They’re aimed at demystifying the craft of tool making.

The day course will teach you to how make a ‘straight’ knife, the perfect wood carving tool. Whilst the axe forging weekend will teach you to make an axe head, which you will get to forge, harden, temper and sharpen yourself. There will also be time to fit a handle, that you’ll carve and wedge in place.

Bladesmithing Day Workshop
Bladesmithing Day Workshop

One day workshop 9am to 5pm

World class blade-smith Nic Westermann is running these classes at our Stepney City Farm Workshop. It’s aimed at demystifying the craft of tool making. Being able to take a rough bit of stock steel and turn it into a beautifully functioning edge tool is extremely satisfying and very empowering.

On this one-day class Nic will teach you to make a ‘straight’ knife, the perfect wood carving tool used for everything from spoons to shrink pots, as well as being useful in most larger projects. This class will be suitable for people with no tool making experience. You will get to forge, harden temper and sharpen your blades to walk away with beautiful tools! Handles, Tooling and Forge design will also be covered so you leave the course with the knowledge to make your own versions at home after the course.

Along with Nic, two of our core tutors will be running the course with a student to teacher ratio of roughly 3:1, meaning you get plenty of guidance and assistance.
