Is offering a Design Masterclass for Blacksmiths. Over the course of three days there will be a series of lectures, workshops and demonstrations exploring the following:

the research process

analysis and evaluation of designs as they progress

the creation of samples, models and maquettes.


Adrian is a long standing member of staff at the National School of Blacksmithing where he’s been teaching since 1987. The BA (Hons) Artist Blacksmithing course was initially his vision after he identified that the blacksmith students he was teaching needed to be designers as well as blacksmiths and so he approached the Art College and an exciting collaboration between the two institutions began.

I have been a blacksmith for over 30 years and in that time have been involved in work as diverse as the restoration of 17th century gates and railings, the design and making of contemporary garden sculpture and the teaching of my craft to others.” 'Legge

This course runs Friday/ Saturday/ Sunday 9:00-5:00
