It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce the 2016 Bushfire Forge
'Forge - In'.

It will be held on the 6th, 7th and 8th of May 2016.

There will be 3 days of demonstrations, lectures and forging with frolics in the evening.

Demonstrations and Lectures by:-

Jesus Hernandez USA
Lee Sauder USA
Dr Fabrice Cognot France
Josh Burrell UK
Rod Hughes UK
Will Catchaside UK
Paul Mortimer UK

There will also be a smelt and chances to have a go at forging and using the school facilities. I now have 5 hammers running and may well have a 6th on the go by then.

These are friendly international events. They are a great way to meet some of the worlds best Bladesmiths and tap into a wealth of information that you would be hard pushed to find elsewhere on the planet !

Forge-In price : £130

(this includes attendance to the 3 day forge-in and food on the Saturday night. Accommodation and your daily food is not included but there is a limited amount of crash space. For details about accommodation please contact us on the email below.
I run the forge in on a non profit basis and all the money you pay (and then some) goes to the costs of running the event.)

For more info please email or to reserve a place please email us at :

If I can possibly make this, I will be there.

It is just such an amazingly condensed way to meet and learn from some of the real movers and shakers in our strange little world.

As well as the demonstrators, you can be sure that a load of the delegates are of a similar standing.

Damn good fun too.
