Hand Forged Herb Chopper with Glenn Simpson and Matthew Mewburn, Eveleigh Works
Participants will use hammer and anvil to hot forge to shape their own herb-chopping knife. Some of the techniques will include beveling the blade to an edge, hot bending steel to form a handle and heat treating the blade for hardness. During this course, students will gain insight into working with carbon steels and the considerations required to forge and heat-treat these steel blades.
Each participant will take home a completed, hand forged herb chopper of their own making.
Registration includes participation in Blacksmith Workshop, meals including the Speaking Place collaborative dinner, and entry to A Day in the Orchard festival on Sunday 9th October.
