Brian Angell reviewed: 2 day blacksmithing courses

"I have just completed the two day course. Aaron was so welcoming and helpful in answering all my questions. I learnt so much as well as achieving what I wanted from the course - to learn some basic processes, make some products I feel worthy of and gain a proper understanding of what is involved. Although I was the sole trainee, Aaron was such good company the time flew by. Thank you."

David Ham reviewed: 2 day blacksmithing courses

"This course was an excellent introduction to blacksmithing for a total beginner like me. The balance between good preparation and flexible learning was really good, and the pace was just right. We made three items over the two days, all of which will be useful in our home. Aaron is a really good teacher, whatever your ability. Highly recommended."
