Tharwa Valley Forge delivers authentic blacksmithing and bladesmithing experiences every weekend and most days of the week. We provide everyone from novices to experts with the opportunity to experience traditional crafts and to learn new skills.
Experience Blacksmithing in a working forge, design and create your own kitchen knives, or come together as a family and work on a project together. These are just a few of the many experiences available all year round.
We have been teaching people how to create amazing things since 2003. Each year we run over 100 courses and are the largest school of our type in the world. Our award-winning instructors are among the best in Australia and our world-class facilities ensures an incomparable experience.
Our 10 acre campus is set in bushland on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River and is adjacent to Namadgi National Park. Heritage listed accommodation is available on site at historic Cuppacumbalong Homestead.
For those staying at Cuppacumbalong during their course, there is plenty to see and do. Go bush walking along marked trails, visit historic sites along the river, and see native wildlife including kangaroos and wombats.
