I had such a fantastic day, and such an experience. David is incredibly knowledgable and his teaching is second to none - I walked away with some lovely pieces of work that I will be proud to have on display in my home! As an absolute beginner I was amazed at how David was able to help me start working with the anvil and forge within half an hour of walking through the the door. Can’t recommend enough.

Response from David Stephenson Artist Blacksmith:

Nick,
I'm really glad you enjoyed your day. Thank you for your kind comments.
I hope you both enjoyed the rest of your stay.
Regards
David

Just spent a day with David learning blacksmithing skills. Absolutely brilliant day, thoroughly enjoyed it, covered so much and came home with several personally hand crafted items. David is a lovely guy, very knowledgeable. I will definitely be back can't rate it highly enough.

Absolutely magnificent day. David is a wonderfully welcoming, patient, enthusiastic tutor who’s creativity and love of form and artistic design is so inspiring.
We would definitely recommend this course as we had a most wonderful day learning different techniques and getting plenty of hands on experience and actually coming away with an array of very decorative and useful items, all hand made by ourselves!
Would definitely go again.

David is an excellent craftsman, wonderful teacher, and welcoming host.

My partner and I had our first experience of working in a forge and learned so much, improved throughout the day, and have some really wonderful mementos to take home.

If you're considering this course I'd 100% recommend booking in - well worth every penny!

My son (16) has just spent the most amazing day with David. David is a fantastic teacher, patient and extremely talented. He has worked with my son (who has aspergers) to produce the most amazing pieces. He has had the best day ever! We feel very lucky and privileged to have found him and can't recommend him enough. Thank you! The first day of many!...

Great course!

I learnt so much with David, who is very patient and informative. I also enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the afternoon (which was specially catered for me as it was gluten free). I've come away with some excellent makes to display in my home, such a super interesting craft and I would certainly recommend giving it a go.

Thanks again

Just spent a fantastic day learning blacksmithing basics with David.
He is an excellent, experienced (and patient) tutor and teaches all techniques on practical pieces that can be taken home at the end of the day.
I have learnt a lot for my first ever try at this really interesting craft, including how to correct my mistakes!
I am happy to thoroughly recommend this course and David.
