Many people have taken their first steps into the fascinating world of hot forging at the well-equipped course forge over the years. Instruction in Swedish or English.

No previous knowledge is required. With the help of examples and instructions, participants will be given a step-by-step introduction to the methods and holds involved in hot forging. You will learn to light and use the forge and get to know a little more about the tools and material used. You will start by forging a candlestick, some hooks and then a few pieces of door furniture: a hinge, hasp, handle and nail. You are encouraged to bring along some simple ideas about what you want to learn to forge. The course has scope for individualisation and the course leader will make sure that everyone gets to grips with their new-found forging knowledge.
