Richard Whittle reviewed: Blacksmithing Experience

"Athelstane Forge's 'Blacksmithing Experience' is much more than just an experience, it is an excellent introduction to blacksmithing techniques. Blacksmith Alex McBain is a born teacher and is friendly, informative and attentive. If you want to learn basic blacksmith skills in a well-equipped workshop (and use an awesome power hammer!) then this is the course for you. I booked two places – they were worth every penny."

AthelstaneForge responded:

" Hi Richard, Thanks for your review! I had a great day teaching the boys to make their own pieces. Hopefully, I will see you all again soon! Sandy"

"I loved the course. I found it to be informative and an overall great experience. I was taken through each step of forging thoroughly, and felt like ive picked up some good skills all while having a good laugh. Sandy was an excellent teacher, he was patient, encouraging and knowledgeable. I definitely want to continue with blacksmithing after this course"

AthelstaneForge responded:

" Thanks, Chance! Had a great day teaching you, looking forward to another day forging soon!"

Lucy Branse-Instone reviewed: Blacksmithing Experience

"The whole experience was incredibly rewarding and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about how metal moves after it has been heated up. I would definitely be interested in coming back for another workshop after I spend some time with my own forge to improve the skills that I have gained. I should also mention my appreciation for Sandy and his endless amount of patience, encouragement and high quality advice."

AthelstaneForge responded:

" Thanks Lucy! It was great teaching you! Keep practicing and come back to make your own hammer soon!"
