Hot Milk Forge


Hot Milk Forge is a Blacksmithing and Bladesmithing School based in Glenravel, the gateway to the infamous Glens of Antrim. Following years of travelling and working abroad Eamon Higgins, a renowned artist and blacksmith returned to his family’s farm to establish the forge in 2003. Hot Milk Forge runs evening, weekend and day classes in basic to advanced Artist Blacksmithing and Bladesmithing. Evening classes are open to everyone above the age of 16 




 Participants are encouraged to learn the traditional skills not just because the celebration of wrought iron work is a worthy idea but also because only blacksmithing can introduce you to the full potential of steel as a creative medium. At Hot Milk Forge blacksmiths weld with fire, not electricity. Imagine making your own fire side set, wrought iron gate, gifts for your partner, sculpture…. the list goes on.
