Jun 02 Axe-making course, Sweden, summer 2015 By Judith

Ken Hume of the Oxfordshire Woodland Group is looking for fellow enthusiasts to join him on an axe-making course in Sweden.

Participants have the opportunity to make their ‘dream axe’ under the expert tuition and guidance of Lars Enander and Ulrika Stridsberg.

Lars and Ulrika are expert blacksmiths, and Lars is the author of Swedish Blacksmithing, a book on tool forging.

Lars and Ulrika can be seen in action forging an axe here.

The viability of the course would require that about 10 people attend, with full accommodation and meals being provided.

For an idea of what a blacksmithing course in Sweden is like, take a look at this account: www.dryadbushcraft.co.uk/bushcraft-how-to/damascene-knife-making-with-lars-enander
