The work of the blacksmith is one of the oldest trades in the world. What makes it unique is that almost all the work is done by hand. A lump of iron is formed into beautiful dishes, vases and decorative objects by means of fire and technique. Experience how it is to work with fire!
- For groups looking for a team building exercise. Forging is a metaphor for creating new bonds and for strengthening existing ones
- For groups wanting to have fun. Pleasure and collaboration are foremost in this tough forging experience. Strike while the iron is hot!

I am one of the first qualified female blacksmith in the Netherlands with a diploma awarded by the Guild of Art Blacksmiths (Gilde van de Kunstsmeden). The trade is in my blood as I am the fifth generation in a family of blacksmiths. I am passionate about creating bold metallic shapes.
I enjoy the smell of the iron. When I forge, the material is like putty in my hands.
