About this course
March 29th – 31st (SOLD OUT) and 1-3 November
10-5 pm each day
Forge a blade. Carve a handle. Sew a leather sheath.
You will start this three-day journey learning the intricacies of metal selection, heating techniques and blade shaping with Thomas Toogood, local Devonshire Blacksmith from Longdog Smithy. On day two you will work with Felix Kary to carve a handle for your blade from local hardwood and on the final day you will go to Tanner Bates to learn the art of leatherwork to make a sheath for your newly completed knife.
Friday and Saturday’s workshops are based at the Cob Barn, Schumacher College, Dartington, while Sunday’s workshop will be held at Tanner Bates Leather School, Webbers Yard, Dartington.
This amazing artisan course will guide you through the process of creating your own blade from scratch – you will craft your very own, totally unique handmade tool to add to your kit for years to come.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
