Halloween Blacksmithing Workshops!

Hallowe'en Blacksmithing Workshops!

Hallowe'en Blacksmithing Workshops!


This activity is suitable for both adults and children alike but must be booked in advance.

The days are getting shorter, the nights are darkening, and the smell of mulching leaves is beginning to fill the air – what better way to chase away the dark night blues than to come along and create your very own inspired Hallowe’en skull keyring with MBC's in-house blacksmith Darren?

Using a range of traditional techniques, Darren will take you through every step to create your own skull key ring. You’ll learn to use the anvil and hammer to shape and add detail to your work, as well as using tongs and gauntlets to safely heat the metal to a semi-molten state in the roaring forge flames.

This is an experience not to be missed, and thanks to the support from Sunderland Library Services MBC is able to offer this activity on a drop-in basis for only £10 per item. They recommend that you should allow around 45minutes to create your hand-forged key ring.
