The advent of Pneumatic Power Hammers in the 19th century freed blacksmiths up from having a partner to do any forge work – it meant that a blacksmith could shape steel faster and with more precision. Being able to forge with a Power Hammer opens up a world of experimentation, allowing the blacksmith to create large scale works of greater complexity. 

Learn how to forge like the pro’s. Whether it’s a forged iron gate, tooling, sculptures or furniture, learn how to confidently use a Power Hammer to shape and manipulate steel to make objects of beauty and permanence. Students will learn a range of techniques on two Anyang 25kg Power Hammers and get a feel for the most widely used brand of modern Power Hammers. 

This class is for people who have prior experience in forging, who have either completed a class with us and feel confident in hand-forging, or who have their own Power Hammer and wish to build on their existing skills. 

To use our Power Hammers in a self-directed Workshop Passport session students must complete this course.

The Introduction to Power Hammers course is sponsored by Anyang Australia.

Great course - not just for those who own a power hammer or plan to own one, this course taught me a lot about how steel moves which I can apply to all forging. And with an Eveleigh Passport I can now use the power hammers at Eveleigh for my own projects.
