Arthur Purdy

Arthur began blacksmithing in 2010, spending two years apprenticed to a small local forge. He founded Woodgate Forge in 2012. Arthur went on to study at the National School of Blackmithing in Hereford, completing the two year Design and Forgework Skills course in 2015, for which he was awarded a Level Three diploma. It was during this time he found his love for the industrial age & heavy forgings, which now inspires his work.

Arthurs’ work marries elements of traditional design and construction with modern minimal lines, producing pieces that look equally at home in old or new settings.
