Excellent course. Aaron takes time to help each student of all abilities to create a piece of metal art with a useful function. Infectious enthusiasm and wide knowledge. Master of art! Highly recommended

Fantastic and enjoyable course. Relaxed pace, but produced more items than I expected (7 separate items of metal work). Aaron is a knowledgeable and an encouraging teacher. I am definitely considering signing up for the other courses he runs.

This course was great. It has a relaxed atmosphere with lots opportunities to get involved and make some cool pieces to take home with you.

Aaron is very knowledgeable and is willing to help if you get stuck or have any questions about the forging process.

Highly recommend this course. Aaron is an excellent teacher and really enthusiastic about helping his students enjoy learning practical blacksmithing skills in his well equipped workshop. I came home with several items that I was thrilled to have made in the course. A cracking weekend!

I did the introduction to blacksmithing 2 day course a few months ago and got the bug. This intermediate two day course was really what i wanted and that was to try and get the skills to start my own forge. It did that and more. As well as improving my skills, it allowed us to make some of the tools needs to get started, but more importantly it was the advice and insights which really helped.
So I am ready to have a go at starting my own forge.
Many thanks Aaron a great weekend

I came along with a friend who'd received the weekend course as a gift and had so much fun!

Aaron was such a wonderful, patient teacher, who took the time to give each of us (3 on the course in total) lots of care and attention. It's not easy to follow what everyone is doing and keep an eye on us all. However, Aaron showed his experience and knowledge throughout and intervened at only the right moments.

I'm still amazed when I look at the items I made! Such a sense of achievement :)

My buddy and I had a great weekend with Aaron. he has a happy knack of adjusting the course to suit the students. We learned a lot, and had fun doing it. The smithy is well equipped. This is a very good course.

My wife treated me for my 64th birthday to Aaron's one day starter course and it has to rank as one of the best presents she has ever sorted for me. The course was informative and interesting and I came away with several, self made, useful objects including a wall hung triple coat hook and decorative poker that my daughter immediately stole for her wood burner! A brilliant day. Many thanks Aaron.

Had this day course as a present last year and finally got round to doing it. Absolutely loved it! Aaron was great, very interesting and I could have watched him work all day. Learnt so much in a short time and made some really useful stuff to take home. Now have the Blacksmith-ing bug!

A fabulous course, professionally run. The content was spot on starting with the most basic of skills and moving on. Aaron is a true master of his trade and a wonderful teacher.
I gained so much from this and do plan on coming back. I can not recommend this enough. 5*.

Excellent course from booking to the ending. Trudi makes you feel welcome and Aaron is a mine of useful information, patient and incredibly helpful. Having never used a hammer to hit anything other than my thumb I was amazed at what I managed to create with his help. I would recommend it to anyone and will probably try to go again purely because it was so enjoyable.
