1. Please make sure to check the shipping options to avoid getting charged for it.
2. I will provide you with safety glasses and ear protection but an odd blister or burn can happen.
3. Wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
4. Knifemaking is exhausting, so make sure to bring lunch, I have plenty of tea, coffee, and biscuits.
5. You must be over 18's only, due to health and safety reasons.
The very nature of Blacksmithing means that you will be undertaking sustained heavy work during the course. To ascertain your suitability to attend one of our courses, we need to ask a few questions before the workshop starts. You are free to decline to answer, in which case we reserve the right to cancel any course you may have signed up for, and any fees paid will be returned to you.
