Australian Gum Leaf Making

Unfortunately, this course is not offered in 2019.

This is a one day course designed to  further develop your blacksmithing skills. The course is focused on the Australian Gum Leaf and the techniques to produce a recognisable replica of this great Aussie icon. Whilst a requirement exists for the participant to have reasonable hammer – hand eye coordination it is not a heavy hitting exercise. It will develop a more measured approach to smithing focusing on accurate and precise forging and as such is easily achievable for the more slender of body physiques.  At the end of the course the participant shall take away with them at least three steel decorative gum leaves and an enhanced skill set and knowledge to encourage their continued development.
