The 3 R's, Renovate, Refurbish, Recycle - The Veterans Forge

Why not come and see what is available at The Veterans Forge...  We hope to deliver a memorable experience for all, opening for public participation for the first time!

Come to a 45 minutes Watch and Learn session about blacksmithing with Will at the Veteran Forge, and see if this might be something you would enjoy!

We are also offering 45 minute Taster sessions for £10, so you can have a go at using the forge to make a nail or a hook to take away.

Bookings are required for both sessions to avoid overcrowding at the forge.

Our ongoing work with veterans at the forge provides them with the opportunity to have a break from everyday life while being given the help and support they may need. They have the opportunity to gain new skills, whilst encouraging a positive mental attitude and maintaining their psychological well-being.

We want to forge people as well as iron.

So why not book onto our event and come see what we do, or try the hands-on experience of being a blacksmith!

If you can't attend, we also fundraise by selling items that are handmade in the forge.
