What will I do?
You will be taken on a trip back in time and taught some of the skills of our ancestors. Ross Berry, our resident blacksmith, will show you how to use an iron age pit forge and guide you through the techniques to make your own traditional fire steel.
You will also make a leather sheath for your firesteel, char cloth to ignite and be given expert tuition in how to use your traditional fire steel.
