Scott Ashton reviewed: Basic blacksmithing course

"I booked this for my best mates birthday and honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and I would recommend to anyone this is the place to go. It was worth any penny and me and my mate are already planning our next visit. Don’t even think twice it’s worth it and the laughs you will have while you're there make it even better."

Alistair reviewed: Basic blacksmithing course

"Attended this course for a friend's birthday and had a great time. Jos and Gary were both polite, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They managed to guide the four of us through making some simple but great-looking blacksmith's knives in the time we had. The instructions were very clear and both Gary and Jos were very patient and took the time to explain what was happening, as well as helping with all the equipment and stopping us making any mistakes. I can't recommend this course and location enough if you have any interest in blacksmithing, its a great day out, really fun, and you get the satisfaction of taking home something you've made yourself!"

Nicole reviewed: Basic blacksmithing course

"I booked this experience for my husband for a present and he came home last night, bubbling over at how wonderful it was. Honestly, I've never seen him this happy with something and he said he loved every single minute. So thank you, for giving him a day to remember and giving him a much needed boost. "

Gareth B reviewed: Basic blacksmithing course

"Fantastic day with Gary and Jos at Friargate Forge. I have absolutely no experience and am usually rubbish at being creative, but the experts got me stuck straight in, helping to show me the ropes and allowing me to create a tomahawk axe within the day! Both were really knowledgable about how to do everything I needed to do and I was delighted with the end result! If you're trying to decide, book this course! You won't regret it."
