David Turner

Festival: 2022

I’m a traditionally trained blacksmith based in the beautiful countryside around Ashbourne in Derbyshire. I have made work as far afield as Scotland, The Algarve, Corfu, Cornwall and even London!

All my work is made to fit an exact spot or to perform a particular function. I make a wide range of work from a simple handle, a gate or bench through to large-scale forged contemporary sculpture.

Don’t let anyone tell you that something can’t be done because it is the wrong size or it can’t be bought. A traditionally trained Blacksmith makes things to fit, makes things to a customer’s requirements even if they didn’t know that is what was required.
