My son took the course with Chester and enjoyed it "immensely". It definitely fed his sparked interest in blacksmithing, and he'd love to do more. Chester was welcoming and patient, and I could see my son completely at ease by the end of the day. Thank you!

I had a fantastic day with Chester learning the basics of blacksmithing. I feel completely inspired to continue learning. Chester is patient and friendly and a great tutor. I had a full one to one day and finished by making one half of a pair of tongs. Brilliant experience and thoroughly recommended.

This was an excellent practical full day's introduction to blacksmithing. During the very enjoyable day I did squaring, drawing out, scrolling, off-setting, up-setting and twisting. Chester is likeable, patient and knowledgeable. I had a whole day (9.45 to 18.00) of one to one tuition for a very modest cost.
I would recommend this course to anyone, male or female of any age over 14. Forging is a fascinating skill that engineers and artist should experience, although everyone would find it fascinating .

I had a great time learning to forge and weld in the workshop. Chester was very patient and there was a very relaxed atmosphere.

Really good course! Chester was a very informative, down to earth tutor. Learnt a lot in the day and would certainly go back for a second day. Definitely recommend for the newcomer to blacksmithing!
