Design & Creation
Designs can be provided to suit every environment from medieval to modern via neo-classical, rococo and art deco. The creation of the final piece will use traditional blacksmith and modern metalworking techniques to be unique and bespoke to its purpose.
Restoration & repair
Projects are sensitively restored, retaining original structures, authenticity and soul of the piece. Restorations of all metals are carried out using the guidelines laid out by the National Heritage Ironwork Group.
Metal Lawn Edging

Courses and experience days
As part of our aim of spreading the craft of blacksmithing we offer half, full and 2 day short courses. Learn to make knives, tools and ornaments that will last a lifetime.
We have been fortunate enough to have had sponsorship by both the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and the Prince’s Foundation to help improve our Cornwall blacksmith practice.

To see me talking about my experience of training watch The Royal Visit episode of The Repair Shop.
Blue Jay Metal Crafts long-term goals are to establish a stable blacksmithing practice in Cornwall. We will use this as a hub where people can learn how a traditional trade can sit within a modern setting. This includes exploring the current environmental impact of metalwork as a trade and how it can be reduced or offset. Follow us on social media to follow our journey.
