About

This event is now sold out. 

Blacksmithing is an age-old tradition and heritage skill, which we're proud to nurture here on site. This is an incredible experience to join us for a special blacksmithing workshop, where you will work alongside our resident blacksmith to create two of your own unique pieces - a perfect Christmas gift for a loved one. You'll make use of traditional forge methods, work the bellows and strike the anvil under the watchful eye of Gerald Monaghan.

This workshop will take place in our Lisrace Forge and is suitable for individuals that are 18+. Lunch will be provided in our Ballycultra Tearooms. Please wear appropriate clothing with boots recommended, please leave any jewellery and open toed shoes at home!

This unique Christmas experience is £120 per person and spaces are limited. Please book your place through the link.
