Blacksmithing at Chain Bridge ForgeBack to Activities
We offer Blacksmithing tasters to the community. Here at Chain Bridge Forge we have revived the Blacksmith’s craft within its original setting, and created a Living Forge.
Chain Bridge Forge is a volunteer-led organisation who without their support the Museum would not survive.
Volunteers make a great contribution to all areas of the Museum life in a range of diverse roles, but we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our team.
There is a cost involved - however some free resources are available.
This is good for wellbeing because
- Blacksmithing is an activity where the participant heats and fashions a piece of metal to complete a number of projects. The activity is a great stress reliever.
- There is a sense of achievement in fashioning the metal and taking home the product.
- The activity builds confidence in the participants.
