One man operated Blacksmith Shop.

Hand Forged in the heart of rural Shropshire, England.


About me

Hedge Ironworks is a one man operated blacksmith shop run by Jake Hedge. Working out of his Forge near Ludlow set in the beautiful Shropshire hills, Jake offers a range of Blacksmithing courses, an online shop and takes on sculptural, architectural & decorative Ironwork commissions of any sort. 

Jake enrolled at the National School of Blacksmithing in 2012 and 3 years later left a fully accredited Blacksmith with the highest possible marks achieved. Whilst still at college Jake secured a job at a local forge and began work before the term had ended. Working on a wide range of jobs from large architectural work, to delicately forged items was an invaluable learning experience.

This was the absolute highlight of our holiday. Jake is lovely person and a superb teacher - he makes the day relaxed and fun. He paces the introduction of different techniques perfectly - we were busy but never rushed and achieved so much more than we expected to. He is great at assessing and adapting to each individual’s ability and level of confidence. I was certain that I’d need loads of help with the hammering and twisting the iron but, with Jake’s guidance, I actually ended up with pieces that were over 90% my own work. We are so chuffed with the pieces we have made.
We’d have no hesitation in recommending the ‘Have a Bash’ day to anyone.
