Tudor Festival Day

Tudor Blacksmithing demonstration

Mesmerising and impressive: forging over a 900 degrees+ fire in a wooden box! Master Thomas will be forging on a reconstructed forge, using actual charcoal and replica tools of the time. He will be making utensils, nails, tools for woodworking or farming, or even cooking knives. Thomas explains the life of blacksmiths in the 16th century and the technicalities of heating up iron and shaping it, how to become a master blacksmith and what other -sometimes gruesome- jobs they used to do for the villagers!
