Children’s Workshop. Minimum age 11 years old. Parents/guardians are responsible at all times. Participation at your own risk, do not wear highly flammable clothing.

 

A bar of iron is heated in a fire with the blacksmith, and this glowing hot iron is forged into a keychain. This is done using a hammer to work the hot material on an anvil. You will go home with a unique keychain.

 

There can be two children forging per 20 minutes, the time slot goes by the hour, so you may have to wait your turn.

 

Once started as an independent worker in the metal industry, Cees Pronk already did research in 1999/2000 about training in the field of forging in the Netherlands. It turned out, however, that an excellent vocational training program no longer existed, which was why he developed his own training in blacksmithing. The final attainment targets he wrote, approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, were the starting point for compiling and writing teaching materials for the Opleiding Smeden in Andelst and the establishment of Mondra Opleidingen. Besides the Opleiding Smeden, various workshops and master classes are given for young and old artists and elementary school pupils. All this takes place in the Forge Cornelis Pronk, the place to gain knowledge about forging techniques.
