DO YOU WANT TO DO YOUR OWN KNIFE BY YOURSELF? 

I want to be a part of keeping the blacksmith traditions alive by sharing my knowledge of the craft on my forging courses. I wish you a warm welcome to my courses to learn exciting new things and to have great experiences of success – either in a group or individually. I teach in Finnish and English. Small groups and good facilities guarantee individual and intensive teaching. Courses are held in the spring and autumn. One day courses are available in summer.

I also teach private students or groups at my smithy. I plan the subject, duration and teaching of the course together with the customer according to their needs and wishes. Ask more: martti@hanhiniitty.fi
