Jack studied Art & Design in Manchester before moving on to Artist Blacksmithing at Hereford College, where he also completed an advanced course in ‘Design and Forging Skills’ – traditional training in decorative ironwork. For many years he worked from his own forge in Brecon, taking on private commissions while moonlighting as a special effects technician for film & TV. But for the past 7 years Jack has travelled around on his own self-directed ‘journeymanship’ through Italy and the UK, learning from some of the best masters. He has now settled for the time in our workshop at Ironart and is living on a boat in Bradford-on-Avon. In his spare time he likes to swim (luckily) and ‘do all the other usual stuff’.
