National School of Blacksmithing


National School of Blacksmithing

The National School of Blacksmithing is part of Herefordshire College of Technology, a college of further education (FE). It is located at the Centre for Rural Crafts in Holme Lacy, approximately 6 miles (10 km) from the city of Hereford, Herefordshire, England.

The school was founded in 1946. It moved to its present purpose built facility which it shares with Hereford School of Farriery in 2001, having previously been situated at HCT's Folly Lane, Hereford campus. (Hereford School of Farriery previously occupied a site on Newtown Road, Hereford). The school trains blacksmiths from the UK and many other nations. The move to the Centre for Rural Crafts in 2001 meant considerable expansion as the facility contains 61 hearths (including the School of Farriery and a demonstration forge), organised into 5 'bays' with 12 hearths and anvils per bay. In addition, each of the 3 blacksmithing bays has its own powerhammer and flypress.
