Learn the art of bronze casting and make your own axe or knife. You can choose to make a replica of a middle Bronze Age Palstave axe head found nearby in the Meon valley, or a replica of an antennae knife from the late Bronze Age. These knives were used as domestic cutlery. These workshops are limited to two participants, so you have lots of help and attention from Jim as you work.
