traditional and contemporary forge work , hand made by Paul Gilbert F,W,C,B
Architectural wrought iron and designers of new and contemporary styles of forged metalwork all made using traditional blacksmithing techniques and jointing methods.
Brian Russell , the master blacksmith at Little Newsham , established his business in 1976 in a 250 year old forge in Teesdale in the north east of England after studying art and design for four years.His work is varied like most most blacksmiths, but he has built up a reputation as a skilled exponent of design and forging skills whether the work be traditional or contemporary. Many journeymen ,(and women), have worked at Little Newsham over the years and have contributed greatly to the body of work that has been produced.
Calalogue components are never used in the work produced here, indeed Brian regards them with some disgust,and takes great satisfaction from designing his work around the forging process and producing every element in his well equipped workshop.

Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths and silver medal holder.
I’ve been blacksmithing for over 35 years. The way that the metal moves when it’s being forged is a constant fascination to me, as well as the whole myriad of ways that it can be used in and around the home, garden or public environment to make objects that are both practical and beautiful. Although I enjoy conserving and reproducing our great historical heritage of ironwork, I also like to explore the intended site and my environment for inspiration, to come up with fresh ideas when a contemporary design is more appropriate.
I can make forged ironwork in any scale – from architectural to domestic – and can work to commision or for direct sale.
I also have extensive experience of teaching and demonstrating the craft at many levels, and can offer demonstrations and bespoke short courses.
Lucille Scott is an artist blacksmith who uses modern and traditional techniques to make hand forged metal items inspired by nature and her love of dance and music. For Lucille the appeal of working with steel lies in the traditional role of blacksmiths, the permanence of their work and passing on this tradition to all around her.
With 25 years experience of teaching practical subjects Lucille opens her forge on a regular basis to students and those who just want a days experience as well as running short courses in local schools.
Lucille’s work is mainly aimed at at the domestic market, she exhibits in local galleries as well as working to commission.
