If you’re hoping to have a bespoke piece of metalwork created for you, perhaps a garden gate, a sculpture or a set of fire implements, be sure to get in contact with a Tetbury blacksmith to find out how they could help.While artistry and craftsmanship should be top of your agenda when choosing a Tetbury blacksmith to carry out your commission, it’s only natural that you will want to consider the price as well. Because each blacksmith has their own unique skills and approach, and every commission is different, it’s difficult to give a ball park figure for the cost of an item created by your Tetbury blacksmith.
However, in general, the price of your commission will be based on a range of factors, including the following:
- the size of the item to be made – as there will be a cost for the metal used
- the intricacy of the item – the more skill and care required to create your commission, the more it will cost
- the reputation of your Tetbury blacksmith – a sought after blacksmith will have lots of requested commissions and so may charge more
- the level of design input needed – an item with a unique design which your blacksmith needs to create from scratch is likely to cost more
