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!

Experience description

During the workshop in an atmospheric and characteristic forge, you will be introduced to this wonderful, ancient craft. You will try your hand with fire, a hammer and anvil, and by the end of the day, you will have produced your own object which you can take home!

For whom?

  • For groups looking for a team building exercise. Forging is a metaphor for creating new bonds and for strengthening existing ones
  • For individuals and/or groups wanting to have fun. Pleasure and collaboration are foremost in this tough forging experience. Strike while the iron is hot!

This tour includes

  • Passionate craftswoman as your host
  • Tools and materials

About Annelied

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.
