We had an excellent day at Peak Blacksmithing, Jess was a great tutor, showing us the whole process from lighting the forge, using the tools then through the different techniques to make a toasting fork. There was a relaxed atmosphere with Jess not far away to help if needed.
With no previous experience of blacksmithing I thoroughly enjoyed my day and would recommend Peak Blacksmithing to anybody!😃👍
Jess is a highly talented tutor who adapts the teaching to your level of expertise, which in my case is zero! Even if you're not that practical you'll be carefully guided to make something to be proud of and if you are, the world's your oyster as to what she can have you making!
The demonstrations are fascinating of what is an amazing craft.
Had a great experience day and would highly recommend it to anyone!
All I can say is wow what a day! My partner and I have wanted to try our hand at blacksmithing for a long time and finally got round to doing it, we made a great choice with this experience day.
Lots of fun and really interesting and set in such a beautiful area. Will be booking again!!
Great hosts and food.
