Karin Olsson reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"My husband and I had the most wonderful day with Bob! He is an amazing tutor with a great sense of humour and wit, not to mention the knowledge of his profession. I cannot recommend this course enough. It is a day of so much focus and fun that everything else around you disappears. I thought I would come home with a small nail but I made a log poker and a beautiful hook. The day gave me a deeper understanding of the expression ‘strike whilst the iron is hot’. Five stars and more to Bob!"

Yon smale reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"What a day, Bob is an amazing teacher, It was a great day from start to finish starting with forge safety then moving onto basic hammer work. Once we hit the afternoon we moved onto more technical work, I was over the moon with the Viking knife and bottle opener. If you're looking for an introduction to smithing I highly recommend this course, Bob also makes a mean brew."

Brian Shields reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"Bob Pickard is a very skilled craftsman, but he can see it all from a novice's perspective as well - which is why he is also such a good teacher. Had an absolutely wonderful day, and came away with a bracket for a hanging basket! Can't recommend Bob too highly"

Michael Thomas reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"Birthday present from my wife, must say that I had a great time with Bob he really knows his stuff makes it look so effortless the morning spent learning the basic skills with the afternoon being used to make an item of your own choice, came away with a top-quality hanging basket holder that will last for ages. Brews on tap, Bob goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and makes sure you are safe in the environment. I cannot recommend this enough for any how what’s any excellent day."
