Stalham, Stalham, Norwich NR12, UK


The Course

On the workshop you will learn how to prepare your own mould, work the leather bellows on the charcoal fuelled furnace. You will then cast the liquid metal into your mould to produce a replica Bronze Age dagger blade to take home at the end of the day. You will then be given Bronze Age filing and cleaning tools to begin working on your blade. Advice will also be given on how to fit a wooden handle to your dagger blade at home.

Participant Information:

We have a heater in the workshop for winter events but for your own comfort please bring warm clothing in case it’s a particularly cold day. Participants must wear a long sleeve top, long trousers and closed shoes, regardless of weather, to protect themselves while casting. Once you sign up to the workshop you will receive full details and directions to the workshop.

Fee & Refreshments:

Our pricing includes tuition, materials, teas and coffees. Though biscuits will be available, please bring a packed lunch.
