I had a fantastic time on the one day blacksmithing workshop. Ross is a great tutor for a numptie like me who's never tried it before and has little background in hands on craft skills. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and very patient. Plus great company, the man is full of fine stories. I'd definitely recommend this course. I came away really pleased with my efforts and up for doing another session. A fine lunch as well (thanks Sarah), really generous of you to invite me to the family table, as somebody else has posted, not so much going on a course as a really enjoyable day out learning something in the company of friends. Ross is really accommodating about letting you have a go at making something you've got in mind, so it's worth thinking about a few ideas before you come.
I booked this for my son and decided to join in too. Despite a dodgy taste in music George was thorough and explained the process in great detail and terms my son could comprehend. We came away with 2 top class bowls, a large dose of confidence for my son and the knowledge to continue the evolvement of the craft. As a man that calls a spade a shovel George is quick to identify incorrect technique, and will put you on the correct path quickly. Don't expect any airs & graces but good old fashioned teaching that gets results.
What a great day and many thanks to Ross for his thoughtfulness and ability to think out of the box to help me with a few projects. A fantastic venue in the countryside and peace and quiet around - apart from me hammering anyway. Big thanks to Sarah as well with great food and splendid tea and cake. I thoroughly recommend this course.
