Stag and Hen Parties and Group Bookings

Old Pound Smithy

If you’ve been tasked with organising the perfect Stag or Hen do and you’re looking for truly original, creative, fun and educational ideas, and you are reading this, then your job is done. That’s it!  No more looking through cliched stag and hen do ideas.  You can relax, triumphant in the knowledge that you have found the perfect activity to make the occassion the most memorable of all the stag and hen dos for ever more. Congrats!

Likewise, if you’re the boss and you’re looking for fun activity ideas to bring you’re colleagues together, then blacksmithing is the perfect choice.  This could be a Christmas do or a summer get away.  The act of forging over the hot fire, pumping the bellows and learning how hot steel moves is the perfect way to break down inhibitions and learn to work together as a team.

We can tailor each package to suit the group size and abilities, whether you are looking to make individual knives, or create something artistic, or even all work on a single project that will take pride of place at the wedding or office.

The courses are taught by our in-house tutors, Bex Simon, a renowned Artist Blacksmith and Dave Harris, both known for their work as makers on the hit BBC One TV show, Money For Nothing.

We also have on-site accommodation if you would like to make a weekend of it, and we can arrange additional activities such as surfing, axe-throwing or coasteering.  If you do stay over, then we have our huge Tipi, The Hardy Hole, for evening entertainment around the giant fire pit and BBQ’s.
