Fantastic course both I and my 16 year old son had a great time. In the morning we began by learning a number of basic blacksmithing techniques which we used to make an ornate wall hook.

A great day all round. The course is fun, informative and the course leaders allow you to be as hands-on as possible while still being immediately available for advice and suggestions. I was given this course as a birthday gift and it was really enjoyable and has given me the knowledge and enthusiasm to continue woodworking in my own time...
