Every single pupil had a go at forging a piece of hot metal over the anvil
Two blacksmiths from Anwick Forge plus a 'floor manager' ran a forging workshop at the school in which every pupil took part.  Following a safety demonstration to the whole school, the pupils were divided into groups and each child had about 4-5 minutes at the anvil under the close supervision of our blacksmiths.  While one pair of pupils were at the anvils, the 'floor manage' made sure that the next pair of would-be blackmiths was wearing long sleeves, a leather apron and securely fastened safety glasses and kept the rest of the group informed about what wass happening at the anvils.
