If you've got blacksmithing down pat, maybe it's time to take your tinkering to your backyard and build your own gas furnace? In this intensive one day course Matt Mewburn will show budding smiths how to build and test their own gas forging furnace. The furnace can be used at home for blacksmithing work, heat-treating, non-ferrous casting work or for making Damascus steel.

27 February 2018 • Forging Furnace

Another fantastic day at Eveleigh. Was great to see the workshop busy with work and better to walk away with a furnace for home. Thanks Piers for your patience...

Matt As a returning class participant it was another great workshop. The day was well organised and at a great pace for everyone. I had a lot of fun and took home a furnace that we can use, I could not be happier. I'm trying to think of a reason so I can attend another workshop. Thanks again Matt for a great day.
