Andy Boon reviewed: One day, one-to-one, blacksmith course

"A really great day in the forge - my wife bought me the experience as a 60th birthday present during the pandemic, so I had to wait a long time to use the voucher, but well worth the wait. We now have a distinctive bird bath for the garden. Alex is an excellent teacher, and made sure I was fully involved in all aspects of the job. Also, the forge is in a beautiful location in the South Downs, within a very interesting museum. Good cafe! "

Chalk Pit Forge responded:

" Hi Andy, Thanks for your great review, it's very much appreciated. I'm glad you are happy with what you made and that you enjoyed your hands on experience! Thanks again for coming and having a bash! Alex "

Simon Perry reviewed: One day, one-to-one, blacksmith course

"What a great gift from my family, I had a two day course where I made an outside hanging sign for my garage/man cave. Alex is a fantastic tutor steering you in the right direction, supplying plenty of tea and biscuits and a great lunch in the café. Chalk Pits Forge in Amberley Museum is a wonderful setting and will be going back to visit in the summer. "

Chalk Pit Forge responded:

" Hi Simon, thanks for the great review, it's very much appreciated. Glad to hear you thought I was a fantastic tutor... That's very encouraging. All the best with the man cave, every man needs one! Alex "
