Get creative at with our Blacksmith & Poppy Making Workshops!

Blacksmith Workshop

Suitable for both ladies and gents, during the session you will learn traditional blacksmithing techniques with the outcome of a forged masterpiece. You will be guided through the process by Darren who will give support throughout, enabling you to create your very own beautifully crafted ironwork by the end of the session. Heat the iron in the flames of the forge, hammering and notching it into shape on the anvil, and learn cooling techniques to finish your piece.

You can then take your finished piece away, a truly individual and unique wedding present, or to have as an extra-special keepsake in your own home.

Arrive at the HOTSPOT to begin the session. Afterward, you can enjoy a well deserved three-course lunch in our Restaurant.

Tickets for the Blacksmith Workshop - £39.95 per person.

Tickets include the Workshop, your piece to take home and Lunch in our Restaurant.

Remembrance Poppy Making Workshop

The Poppy's are created with mild steel and in the Workshop, you will learn how to forge the stems into a 'clip' that will stand on its own or go onto a belt. You will then heat your Poppy Petals and mark as you wish to get your lined effect. You will then forge your Poppy into shape, attach it to your stem and bend upwards to complete the piece.
