Archery
Have you ever wanted to do some archery in Glasgow? Now you can, at the Vanguard Centre and its indoor archery range! We provide regular archery sessions here at The Vanguard Centre. Classes are suitable for ages 12 years and over.
Full instruction and equipment is provided by the centre so why not come along and see if archery is for you!
We have regular schedules classes throughout the week. Sessions are 90 minutes long and 9 places are available at each session.

Private archery tuition and party bookings are also available weekdays from 12 noon until 4pm and we have some availability at weekends. Contact us for booking and pricing.

Blacksmithing
Blacksmithing is the art of working metal using a forge, an anvil, and a hammer. By heating the metal until it is red hot, it can be bent and beaten into shape, eventually becoming a useful item. We have our own forge and all the equipment we need to teach blacksmithing in Glasgow.
Our instructors have undergone extensive training and are constantly working to improve their own skills and knowledge. If you want to learn how to work with metal, to make something with your own bare hands, then our Introduction to Blacksmithing course will be perfect for you.
Alternatively, we also offer small workshops for making anything from pendants to firestrikers.

Historical European Martial Arts
We teach various forms of HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) including medieval and renaissance sword fighting, where we recreate these historical fencing systems from centuries-old textbooks written by fencing masters of the past. Come along to our weekly classes and learn how sword fighting was really done.
Visit our website for more information on classes.
