thing /θɪŋ/ noun
(Old Norse) ▶ An assembly or meeting of the free men and women of a country, province or a clan. At the thing, disputes were solved and political decisions were made. The place for the thing was also the place for rites and for commerce.
(Tharwa Valley Forge) ▶ A four-day Viking festival of making. Forge your own Viking knives, helmet, axe, shield and other Viking tools.
This four-day experience at Cuppacumbalong Homestead runs from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. Our experts will guide you through a smorgasboard of blacksmithing, toolmaking, and woodwork.
Over the course of almost a week, you'll forge your own Viking knives, helmet, axe and shield. Classes will operate in a round-robin fashion to facilitate small class sizes. Although this is a big event, we are taking great pains to make sure you enjoy full-access to our instructors and the high quality we are renowned for.
All-inclusive price covers all materials, teaching, PPE, insurances. Accommodation is available onsite for an extra fee.
