ONE DAY SWORD MAKING COURSE Come and make your own
ONE DAY SWORD MAKING COURSE
Come and make your own Bronze Sword.
This style of sword is called the Ewart Park Leaf and comes from the middle bronze age period approximately 3,000 years ago, Bronze age swords differ greatly in their design but very much portray the skill set of the early metal workers of the bronze age period. This style is not only elegant to look at but is also quite light for a sword weighing around 750 grams making it easy to use in battle.
During this one day course, you will learn how to make a sand mould and pour your own bronze sword, The sword will then be cleaned up with adbrasives before the final polish and have handles fitted to them.
Finally you will make a leather scabbard for your sword.
Course times, 9.30am-4.30pm
These courses can accommodate 3 attendees.
