Developing the skill and artistry of a blacksmith is a long process – most will have served an apprenticeship and undergone a good deal of training in order to gain the expertise and craftsmanship necessary to succeed as a blacksmith.As methods and techniques progress and develop, so greater numbers of Ramsey blacksmiths are learning new skills, particularly when it comes to working with other materials. Some skilled Ramsey blacksmiths are able to create pieces which incorporate different kinds of metals, and other non-metallic materials.

These skills mean your Ramsey blacksmith can apply a huge level of creativity to your commission – something you wouldn’t find if you purchased a piece of metalwork from a retailer of catalogue.
