Event Information

Hereford’s biannual festival of artist blacksmithing, Ferrous, returns in 2024, ready to explore blacksmithing’s connection to the environment and the value of materials from earth to iron.

The Courtyard will host one of Ferrous’s 11 exhibitions by UK and international artists, and the city centre will be the venue for pop-up events, including bookable Have-a-Go-Forging sessions, demonstrations of smelting and metalworking techniques, artist talks and family workshops.

Ferrous 24 celebrates creative metalwork from the UK and around the world, with diverse artists and makers from over 20 different countries taking part. The festival’s artists are working with schools, communities, and the public to create projects and exhibitions that will intrigue and entertain visitors.

Ferrous is a partnership between Hereford BID and Hereford College of Arts, with the support of Hereford businesses and venues. Arts Council England, Hereford BID, Elmley Foundation and Herefordshire Council are funding the 2024 festival.
