Course dates

One-day course dates

One-day courses run on Saturdays only 9.00am until 5.00pm.  

Starting promptly at 9.00am with tea or coffee and biscuits, information about the make-up of the day and an introduction to the facilities.  Tea, coffee and biscuits will be offered at a mid-morning break, repeating for a break in the afternoon.  

(Light lunch consisting of sandwiches/side salad and chips plus a soft drink is included in the cost for the day.  Lunch currently is provided at the Church House Inn at Harberton about 10 minutes drive)

UNFORTUNATELY, we are Unable to offer the pub lunch at the present time, so have to request students Bring Their Own Packed Lunch.   We will have a soft drink for you and £5.00 refund. This situation may change and we will keep you informed.   

The Two-day course follows a similar format and takes place over Friday snd Saturday.  

COVID19  We can only resume our courses when we are able to do so according to government guidelines    However, we have been giving how we can offer a safe environment for our students. 

We have reorganised the forge workshop to enable students to use the facilities a metre apart.    We will provide gloves, eye protection and hand wipes but suggest students bring their own masks. 

Toilet facilities are available and we will have clear instructions for cleaning before and after use.   

We have sufficient mugs for students to have a new clean mug for beverage breaks, however if you would feel more comfortable bringing your own mug please feel free to do so.

If there is any further measures we can implement we will update the website accordingly.

PLEASE NOTE: all the courses are for students 16 yrs and older
