Forge Ways is dedicated to providing a variety of workshops and hand made items in the beautiful Dyfi Valley on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park.
We run a variety of scheduled short courses throughout the year at our tranquil private woodland and the local Centre for Alternative Technology and you can also find us at festivals all over the UK demonstrating and running free workshops (check out the calendar here). Courses range from spoon and spatula carving, shrink pot carving, stool and table making, bushcraft courses and parties, guided walking and even axe throwing. If you're after a bespoke course for individuals, couples, families or groups then buy a voucher here?
