About Wieland Forge
My name is Jason Green. I am a blacksmith and farrier. I started my apprenticeship as a farrier back in 1987, training for 4 years before qualifying in 1991. In 2001 I decided to give up horse shoeing and enter the world of blacksmithing. It was all a bit overwhelming at first, learning different skills and running my own business.
At first I went down the general ironwork route, making gates, railings and sculptural pieces. Shortly after, however, I got into historical blacksmithing and haven't looked back since.
I am a member of Vikings of Middle England re-enactment society where I started making Viking age weapons and domestic wares.
My main interests are in the early Saxon to late Norman periods, but I have made items from many other historical eras. I have made ironwork for films, TV, museums and castles. I have ironwork in Portland, Dover, Rockingham and Warwick castles.
When away with Vikings of Middle England I also do demonstrations on early medieval blacksmithing. Using a charcoal forge and bellow I create knife blades, arrowheads, fire strikers and other items.
If you would like some ironwork for living history or re-enactment, please contact me.
I am also trade at some of the re-enactment markets (ILHF, TORM) so catch me there.
