About Chris

Chris was drawn to blacksmithing firstly as a hobby and then as a business and now leads the workshops in our historic forge – Chris said:

“The forge would have been one of the time buildings to be created at the mine. They would have made all the tools and metalwork for the mine in here. You can feel the history.”

Workshop Feedback:

“We both like making things and have always enjoyed hands-on crafts like woodwork, so a blacksmithing course was right up our street. We not only learned the art of blacksmithing but Chris brought the workshop to life with the role of the blacksmith through the ages. If you like finding out about history while learning a new skill – it’s a must!”
