Absolutely fantastic course, learnt a lot of things that I want to learn more about in the future. Jacek was great and explained everything really well and showed me how to operate the machines and the forge. Would definitely do it again. 10/10.

I had a great day with Jacek in the forge. He explained everything very well and helped me to get the correct techniques. I ended the day with a brooch that I now proudly wear on my cloak.
I would highly recommend this course and will be looking to go again in the future.

Attended this course when it was in its infancy along with 2 freinds. Was superb and great fun.
I've never worked metal before so everything was new and exciting.
Jacek was really good and ensured that I didn't hurt myself and that I managed to achieve my end goal of producing an arrow head and a pennanular brooch.
Both items now sit proudly on my bookshelf.
So in conclusion:
Was it worth the cost - absolutely
Would I go again - absolutely

What are you waiting for. Book on and have a great time.

Loved it, I did not want it to end, Jack was a gentleman and needed all his skills with me, but even I managed to walk out of the forge with a beautiful bodkin socketed arrow head, done by myself... The day was a whole lot of fun from start to end and I will be back!, to make something else pointy. Defo recommend this course, value for money and an eye opener into the blacksmiths world.

An absolutely fantastic course, making my own knife where we were introduced to all the tools and equipment from the perspective of an absolute novice and shown step by step how to take the metal from ingot to blade, complete with heating, hammering, shaping, heat treating and tempering and grinding the blade.
He guided us expertly through each step, corrected us when we went wrong, helping us fix our mistakes, and at the end of the day, both of us came out with excellent quality finished products that we got to keep. I still have my knife from last year when I took the course and it is still in excellent condition.
I cannot recommend highly enough, and if/when he offers a more advanced course, I would love to go back and take part in that.

This was an excellent course, went a a great pace with a lot of information being passed down. From a mastercraftsman who knows his trade well.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Would definitely recommend the course to anyone with an interest.
