"Had a fantastic day (Sat 23 Apr 22) with David, he is the epitome of a patient, extremely experienced teacher of a practical skill. I arrived with zero blacksmithing experience and left with a rich knowledge of the basic principles, the items we had worked on and the confidence that I could re-create those items myself (given the tools and forge of course!). I can honestly say it was one of the best learning experiences I have had and it is testament to the environment he has created, his kind manner and pure skill as an accomplished mentor. Thank you to David and I will certainly be back for more!
