Blacksmithing Basics

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

24 Feb 2018 to 8 Dec 2019

Learn the basics of blacksmithing and create your own set of blacksmithing tools with Terry Drennan.

You will make a set of blacksmithing tools including a cold chisel, hot cutter, round punch, oval punch, centre punch and tongs. As well as your tools, you will take away the basic skills of blacksmithing including operating a forge and using the tools and anvil.

Terry Drennan began training as a blacksmith and farrier in Melbourne when he was 21 years old. He has won the Australian champion in blacksmithing and farriery on many occasions. At the same time, Terry never lost the skills and enthusiasm for the other traditional facets of his trade such as making decorative gates and furniture. He has been teaching blacksmithing courses at Cobb+Co Museum for over 15 years.
