I attended Julian’s two day course and it was amazing!

We made a tree form bird feeder. Julian showed me how to use the forge, control the temperature of the metal and how to shape it. His knowledge and experience is vast and he was generous with his time. Over the two days we worked together to forge all the parts for the feeder.

Julian was friendly and an excellent teacher, I would have no problem recommending him to anyone of any experience.

Wow what a fantastic weekend! Julian is a very talented artist and blacksmith but best of all, a great tutor with oodles of patience and a thoroughly lovely man. We arrived thinking we'd leave with a boot scraper or the like but then Julian piqued our interest and he let our imagination flow, putting his own thoughts and ideas in when we needed help. We ended up with a huge wall mounted hat rack which will look fabulous with our array of steampunk hats on. I can't believe that we managed to make something so beautiful and practical of our own design in just 2 days. Nothing fazed Julian at all, he's calm and chatty and I'm now converted to having honey in tea! Thank you so much for an amazing, dirty, exhausting, invigorating weekend. We will definitely be booking again sometime

Thoroughly enjoyed the two- day course and found Julian to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful. He was very flexible in accommodating and incorporating our design ideas as we went along. We came away with a piece of work which we love, and had a great time making it.

My partner and I did the weekend blacksmithing course; we would both thoroughly recommend it. Julian was friendly, patient, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. This was a birthday present for my partner and we came away very happy, having made a number of items, which exceeded my expectations as we were complete beginners. If it's cold outside do wrap up warm, as the forge doesn't kick out quite as much heat as you might expect. If you're considering booking this course I would say definitely do it; you won't be disappointed.

From being picked up from the train station, to help with accommodation, Julian was a great help, ran a brilliant course and I came away with a great item. I would fully recommend this two day course.
