Ferg has been making knives for over 20 years and his experience is second to none. This is an extremely practical course and the pleasure in creating your own tool is a truly unique and timeless experience.
This is a fully catered course and people are encouraged to camp to immerse themselves in the process. You can bring your own tent or we can provide basic bell tents and beds (these are an additional £120) or you can have luxury accommodation in one of our furnished bell tents. Details here.
A fantastic experience- 4 days inside an iron-age hill fort creating your own knife from scratch. I had no prior metalworking experience, but the team running it are brilliant and provide great support and laughs throughout the course. I would highly recommend it!
