Fantastic Day!, spent with a most experienced instructor and all round great guy - Colin. Thanks!

A full on day spent covering many techniques resulting in the making of several forged items under his close instruction and guidance, it was a fun day and I learnt a lot, It's very satisfying to create hand crafted objects out of a pieces of raw metal, highly recommended.

Great day learning the basics with Bob, very good communication before arrival giving very good directions to the workshop. The tuition was exceptional. Bob ensured I had something to take home with me and let me choose what to make. This course is ideal to anyone wanting to learn a new skill. Fish and chips at lunch wasn't bad either.

It was an absolutely brilliant day. I would recommend to anyone who wants to try their hand at blacksmithing. Colin is clearly a very experienced and talented craftsman, very patient and gives clear instructions. Came away with lots of ideas. Thank you.

I have received it for my 18th birthday. I was working with Bob, who is a great teacher. It was fun and really enjoyable experience. I have learned a lot of new skills and it really helped with my understanding of forging.

I bought this as a birthday present for my husband who is obsessed with Forged in Fire. He absolutely loved the blacksmithing day. He would highly recommend and couldn’t have praised his instructor more. He wants to do more courses with him. Thank you for making his day

I bought this day for my husband for Christmas. He spent the day with Colin yesterday and absolutely loved it! He made a poker for our fire and a hook to hang it on. Mike said Colin was great and really helped him to ensure he got the most from his day. Would highly recommend this 1 to 1 experience.

Cannot speak highly enough about Bob, what a legend. Took my friend for his birthday and we both absolutely loved it, Bob is an incredibly knowledgeable and patient teacher and a good laugh too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Brilliant.

This was the second day of my birthday present, and I couldn't have enjoyed the day more. Colin is a great teacher, who explains things patiently and well. Again, I was allowed to work independently and make my own mistakes, and then correct them with Colin's guidance. I made a couple of things, including a decorative flesh fork, which will get a lot of use. Can't wait to be able to have another go at this, and can't recommend the day enough.

Had an absolutely fantastic day with Colin and I learned so much, can't wait to set up my own forge to practice what I learned. I was able to make a coat hook, blacksmith tongs and a bottle opener. Would recommend this course to everyone.
I will definitely be back to try the hammer skills.

Colin's a really nice guy who taught me loads of techniques. I'd never done any blacksmithing before but came away with 3 wonderful items - a fire poker, a bottle opener and an ornamental viking knife. Highly recommend this course.

I booked a surprise birthday present for my husband. Bob was super helpful with the booking of the course, he took the time to ask where we were coming from so he could give helpful directions.
My husband has had an amazing day, he thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. He has made a lovely letter opener and a toasting fork with an impressive treble clef at the top.
I would highly recommend Bob to anyone.
I have gained good brownie points with such a fab present!

I had a fantastic day with Colin! He is friendly, patient and matter of fact. I was able to observe how to complete each stage of making my poker/ash scraper and hook and at the end of each stage/demo the reins were handed over to me to make it happen. It was great to see and take part in all manner of techniques and tool use. I felt absolutely involved in the process from design to completion. Couldn't be happier and very, very much recommend Colin's courses. Inspiring.
