This intensive 4 day master class is a rare chance to learn from Roberto Giordani, one of the worlds leading blacksmiths and gain understanding of advanced forging processes and sculptural form. The project is to forge flowers, stalks and leaves from a single piece  of steel using a variety of tools and anvil techniques.

Roberto learned this technique from one of his teachers, the famed Angelo Bartolucci and says that understanding the process of moving metal in this project is a big step to learning and understanding the very efficient Italian method of "plastica forging" where the metal is moved in a brutal but elegant way and produces the style of forged work that has become immediately identifiable as contemporary Italian blacksmithing.

09 April 2018 • Advanced Forging Masterclass with Roberto Giordani

The masterclass with Roberto was very challenging, splitting the flat bar and forming the flowers and leaves were a interesting concept, the end result is very pleasing to the eye. Roberto is a very patient and caring instructor, quite willing to pass on any knowledge.
