Enquire about Andy Basnett

Andy has a wealth of experience, gathered over 25 years and centred around the skills of the blacksmith's craft, a diverse range of work is undertaken including the reproduction and restoration of historic wrought iron, to the creation of original sculptural pieces.

With an emphasis on hot forging techniques - working at the fire with hammer and anvil - each piece receives the same care and attention to detail, craftsmanship and finish.

Work is mainly carried out in mild steel, although wrought iron, stainless steel, copper and brass are also used.

Andy works from a well equipped forge just outside Malton in North Yorkshire.
