Nick Morrish reviewed: One day one to one blacksmith course

"This was an excellent 60th birthday present. I arrived as a complete novice and left with a fully functional bird bath and a bottle opener which has been in constant use since. Alex is a very patient and friendly tutor. A thoroughly enjoyable experience."

Chalk Pit Forge responded:

" Hi Nick, Thanks for your great review. I really appreciate it. I'm glad you had a good time and enjoyed the experience you got for your 60th! All the best Alex Smith "

Ross Reynolds reviewed: One day one to one blacksmith course

"I had a one day course with Alex. His craft is second to none, absolutely worth booking onto the course. I felt I learnt a lot and just seeing metal being transformed into a piece of art was so rewarding. A pleasure to have met you Alex."

Chalk Pit Forge responded:

" A pleasure to have met you too, Ross. Glad you found it rewarding, I do too. Thanks for the review. All the best with the building work. Alex"

"A day that i will remember for all the best reasons. Alex was a great teacher, giving me encouragement, advice and guidance in a perfectly blended manner. I had no prior experience of working with metal but found everything about the day so rewarding. I hope to go back one day."

" Hi Marcus, thank you for going to the effort of writing a review, it's much appreciated and I'm glad you enjoyed the experience and would come back for more! Many thanks Alex "
