Richard S reviewed: Anvil Forge blacksmith experience day

"Very well organised, experienced group of people. Safety/health a main concern. Considerate and attentive team who are also well informed about materials science and metallurgy."

Sarah reviewed: Anvil Forge blacksmith experience day

"A really enjoyable day. I did not have high expectations of what I, as an absolute novice, could achieve in a day and was beyond delighted with the garden sculpture and poker I took home. The tutors were fantastic and really encouraging. They had the balance spot on for letting you have a go at every technique and then rescuing the mistakes to prevent disaster. Cannot recommend this course more highly."

Anvil Forge responded:

" Hi Sarah Thanks for the review , we aim to offer the best possible experience on all our classes and make sure everyone ends up with a handmake piece of metalwork they are proud of. best wishes John"

Julie King reviewed: Anvil Forge blacksmith experience day

"What a fantastic day. Spencer and Aidan were brilliant, patient tutors. After making a poker, we set about creating our desired pieces after a brief discussion about what they entailed. My husband created a knife blade and used lots of techniques. I came away delighted with several garden ornaments for glass balls that I had previously made. Aidan was very attentive in checking along the way that the balls fitted the metalwork. Lunch was provided and the atmosphere was really pleasant. I would definitely recommend, and would be very happy to return."

Anvil Forge responded:

" Hi Julie I am pleased the guys looked after you so well , we try hard to make sure the experience is positive and everyone comes away with something they are proud of and hopefully have something to show off to friends and family. We would love to see you back again in the future. best wishes John"

Mike Wilson reviewed: Anvil Forge blacksmith experience day

"My Son Jason and I visited Anvil Forge as a gift and had the most fantastic experience creating Viking knives ably guided by Spencer who was very patient and clear on how to make the most of our time. The whole team were very welcoming with the right mix of humour and creative support that made us both want to book back in and attempt something even more spectacular. Thank you Spencer, you have got us hooked...."
