Richard Quarmby reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"I had an absolutely fantastic day with Bob. Bob is a lovely man, he is extremely knowledgeable. He makes the whole day very informative whilst being enjoyable and highly productive. I enjoyed his company immensely, he has a great sense of humour and a way of getting the best out of you. Bob takes his health and safety very seriously so you are in safe hands with him as long as you listen to what he says. I would highly recommend him to anyone as I guarantee you will have a lovely day forging with Bob. "

Barrie Kay reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"My son booked this course on the 19th May for my 80th birthday, it was a privilege, and pleasure to meet our instructor Bob. It was back in 1959 when I was placed with a craftsman at the start of my apprenticeship as a fitter, and Bob was in every way as good a craftsman as I have ever had the pleasure of working with. On behalf of my son, and on my own behalf thank you for a most enjoyable, and informative day. Regards Barrie."

"Myself and son did a day with Bob, it was a great day well worth it. I had a few delays booking a date but Bob was very helpful. The day was great, Bob explains things well, easy going and very knowledgeable. You are busy all day and it's well worth the experience. Bob shows you different methods in the morning and in the afternoon is where it all comes together and you make things you can take home. The best course myself and son have done and Bob makes a good brew."

Sarah & Steven reviewed: Blacksmithing - one to one - Hammer Skills

"I booked the one-to-one course for my partner’s birthday and he loved every minute of it. Bob has the rare combination of decades of experience in his craft, whilst also being a good teacher. There was an excellent balance between demonstration and hands-on work. Bob is a lovely guy, very friendly and funny, and made the experience welcoming to a complete beginner. We’d love to come back again and learn more. "
