All my courses take place in my work shop which is a working forge (I do this every day) courses are run with a maximum of 4 people and I will take you through the whole process, answer any questions you have so you should go with a very nice axe and a big smile on your face.

Want to review this course?

Had a phenomenal day doing the axe making course that Andy offers. Andy was helpful, informative and most of all patient throughout the entire process. He made the entire process and enjoyable experience and was supportive throughout the whole time I was there. The most important thing I found was the emphasis Andy had on the enjoyment of the process and it very much came across in how engaging he was when making the axe. Thanks for an awesome day Andy!
