About the company

Do you want to experience the art of blacksmithing? You have come to the right place!

Rob is one of the few time-served blacksmiths in New Zealand. He loves sharing his passion for blacksmithing and has a deep understanding of forging. Rob has a strong cultural background and teaches with lots of enthusiasm and kiwi humour. The forge is set in a beautiful New Zealand environment.
We run a variety of courses to suit you. The calendar and below options are a guideline of availability, please don’ t hesitate to contact us and customise your experience in the forge.
Below options are possible on the available dates and no previous experience is required for any of the classes. There is no minimum age, however, we do require an adult to be present and book with anyone under 16 (either as a participant of the class or a as spectator).
