Bronze Age Sword Finishing Workshop

Finish a pre-cast Bronze Age Sword

£180.00

26th September 10am-4pm

Overview

Step back in time and finish your own bronze sword, just like the ones found at Flag Fen.
Led by Jonathan Cope, a multi-period re-enactor and creator of a wide range of historical replicas and take home your very own sword.
This is a ‘light' one day workshop on Sunday from 10.00 – 16.00. This version is offered where attendees visit for Sunday only. They will receive a pre-cast sword blank and commence the finishing process under guidance.
£180 per person. There are only very limited spaces on this workshop. Email museum@cityculturepeterborough.org.uk to book.
At the workshop:
Due to the nature of this work it is suggested that attendees will need to be physically fit and able, over 21 years of age and of practical disposition. The working environment is predominantly outdoors and all weathers with lots of physical activity.
All equipment, tools and PPE will be provided. With hard work you will be able to finish your sword in the given time.
Many factors may affect the ability to cast successfully so it may be necessary to lengthen the day slightly if needed. In the event of any mis-casts, or other issues, attendees will be supplied with a pre-cast sword to finish.
