Anvil Forge Blacksmithing is run by Ross and Annie Smith. Ross has over 18 years experience as a Blacksmith Welder / Fabricator and is committed and passionate about his work. Ross started his career as an apprentice Blacksmith for a local Forge where he learnt traditional hot forging skills and more modern welding and fabricating techniques. He went on to work for architectural welding and fabricating firms, before deciding to go back to his roots and set up his own forge producing bespoke hand crafted metal work for clients who wish to own a unique quality product made by a talented metalcraft specialist.
In recent years Ross has earned the Journeymans certificate awarded by the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths. He has won prizes for his work at local shows and competitions and is a member of the British Artist Blacksmith Association. Ross feels it is important to ensure the skills of the traditional Blacksmith are promoted and retained for future generations.
