Absolutely amazing day, I learnt so many techniques and have a newfound respect for the trade, Colin's a damn nice bloke and a very good teacher.

Spent the day with Bob learning the art of moving and shaping hot metal. It takes a lot more skill and thought than I ever would have guessed - a million miles from simply getting it hot and hitting it hard! Bob is a great instructor and the one-to-one tuition was fantastic. Get the Heat right, Hold it right, and Hit it right.
This was a birthday gift from my incredible wife and what a brilliant gift it was.
Thank you Bob (and thank you Tracy).

I went a couple of weeks ago and had a very enjoyable and informative day, the skills I picked up were immediately transferable to my maker business.
Colin is a patient and attentive instructor, I finished the day feeling like I'd just hung out with a friend yet my head was reeling with new information and I was flushed with the success of my achievements.
Very good course for those not afraid to get stuck in.

AWESOME!! I came back to UK to see family and found Anvilsring Ironwork on the internet not far from where I was staying. Colin was really great, sorted out a date at short notice. As a Technology teacher in New Zealand I had techniques I wanted to learn to take back to school to pass on to students. Learnt so much, really awesome course, great value. Thanks Colin

Second Round - Great again!
Visited Colin for another 2-day class of basic blacksmithing a few weeks ago - This time for a specific toolmaking class. I went home finally with a big bundle of new tools based and made on my personal wishes in cooperative work with Colin. Of course including a lot of really helpful advises and tricks for realising my further tool ideas. Thanks Colin!

Absolutely fantastic day, me (matt) and my mate (matt) thought it was great. Colin is a proper down to earth bloke who tells it like it is and is a real laugh. His tea is so strong it'll knock your socks off and we got so much done in the day it was massive value for money!

We will be returning!

What a brilliant day! Neither of us had any prior experience but Colin is a great instructor. He guided us through each new technique, letting us try everything for ourselves and offering support when needed. We learnt a lot and achieved a lot in a day, bringing home different items we’re proud of. The day was fun and thoroughly enjoyable. We’d highly recommend to anyone wanting to try something new. Thank you Colin.

I went on this course not knowing what to expect.
Will I just make nail.
I had a great time and made a lot more than a nail.
Colin was a very patient and attentive instructor and guided me through various lessons with ease.
I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to experience the right stuff.

Satisfied student. Bill

Will be going again for more.

Absolutely amazing. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Bob picard, who was a very good instructor. Complete patience with me, even when I was struggling. I was made to feel comfortable in every aspect of what we did. Also I would like to add, Bob made me look for my own mistakes, this i believe makes everyone get a better grip on what it is they are doing. I would do it all again, and from this experience will one day open my own forge.

A fantastic way to spend a Saurday.

My wife booked the day as a Christmas present for me and my son and between the two of us we didn't have an ounce of experience. The guidance and hands on help was perfect for building our confidence and we finished the day with 3 pieces of work each that we are both really pleased with. I'd have no hesitation recommending the day to anyone or going back for another day.

A really great day.

I'd never done any sort of metal work and I ended up with three items I'm really proud of. Just the right balance of guidance and hands on help so that I felt like it was my work, but the end results was a much higher quality than I could possibly have managed by myself.

A great birthday gift from the family and a really enjoyable day spent with my brother.
Colin's forge was fired early in the morning and wasn't put out till late afternoon, as he had us busy shaping and forging a variety of ironwork.
The relaxed atmosphere contributed to much learning and Colin was very supportive and encouraging.
Came away feeling very pleased with ourselves and new found skills.
Can certainly recommend the course.
