This hammer skills course suits in my opinion perfect for everybody who seriously wants to learn the essentials of blacksmithing. It`s a well-conceived setup based on practical experience. I really enjoyed the two days with Bob as a fabulous teacher. A great craftsman with patience and a good humour. Thanks Bob!

As a student with blacksmithing experience, Colin had shown me in a two days course a huge amount of different forging techniques . Combined with a lot of self-made exercises a great possibility to learn and progress. I really enjoyed the two days with Colin as a fabulous teacher. A great craftsman with passion and a good humour. Thanks Colin!

Best birthday present ever. A day with Graham left me with a wealth of knowledge and confidence on the lathe.

Will definitely be back for further courses and advice.

I would recommend Theresa very highly, as complete novices she took my mum and me through all the processes from raw fleece to washed skeins of wool. She is extremely knowledgeable and a really flexible teacher. We laughed A LOT while learning all day. The whole set up is perfect and I am about to buy my first wheel and...
