As a complete beginner Simon was a great teacher. He gives full and interesting instruction, explaining not just how to do things but why you are doing them. His easy going style and willingness to field any questions throughout made for a great day out. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course and Simon's enthusiastic tutelage, his pride in his work is infectious.
Great day at the forge. Ross and his family are warm and welcoming. It's not all about strength, so don't be worried you won't be able to do it. Possibly come with an idea of what you would like to take home. If you would like something more ambitious, consider a two day course. You can always stay at the local farm and take in a few pints in the evening at the Duck Inn. All within hundred yards of each other. The lunch was delightful and if your good, you'll get a large slice of homemade cake for tea! What can be said other than - great fun, great value for money and highly recommended. Thanks Ross and family!
My daughter and I are now hooked on this new craft/art. We had a wonderful time learning how to work with silver clay and produced a few lovely pendants. This is a craft I would definitely do more of in the future.
