Welding with confidence

Nigel is an energetic and enthusiastic tutor, full of knowledge and hints and tips to help you along, combine this with his many anecdotes and tales and you are in for an entertaining and informative day. This course is squarely based at someone who has never used a welder before so is a great place to dip you toe into the world of metal fabrication. Situated in the heart of Norfolk countryside the whole site is an artisan paradise.

Welding with confidence

I had basic welding knowledge but wanted to learn the setups and tricks of the trade. Nigel is a great one to learn off, very knowledgeable and creative.
Would highly recommend. I'll be back for the blacksmith course!

It may seem an expensive day but it is not. These days have been phenomenal, this is a true insight in to the craft of the blacksmith, and you get to keep all the cool stuff you make. The Smith (Nigel) is professional and entertaining throughout the day, a true font of knowledge with the patience of a saint for us less accomplished skilled people. I highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in this remarkable field.

Attended a 1 day course as a Xmas pressie & if I’m honest I didn’t know what to expect. I needn’t have worried as the day was brilliant.
Nigel is a great story teller & unique character who kept us entertained all day.
His skills in his craft are second to none & he has the patience of a saint! A great teacher & all round good guy.
We started at 8.30 & left at 5.30 having made bbq burger flippers, leaf key rings & two bespoke structures for the garden.
Highly recommended!

I attended a one day course, after being given the day as a gift. What a fantastic and exhausting experience. Nigel is a patient, friendly teacher and full of stories to keep you entertained and put you at ease. He clearly goes above and beyond to share his craft and his passion is infectious. I would love to return next year and learn more. Thanks to Maxine and Nigel for a great day.

Blacksmithing and Metal Craft

An amazing day learning the basics from an artisan craftsman. Nigel is a phenomenon. A true master and gent. He made everyone feel at home at the forge. Showing us the processes to make a piece step by step then allowing us time to follow suit. Always on hand for some guidance and a good yarn. Had a fantastic time and can't wait to return to make our wedding bands.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day at the Forge with Nigel, With his help & advice I amazed myself at what I was able to achieve. What topped the day off was the night spent in the shepherds hut, a fantastic experience and I would recommend this course to anyone considering it
