"This is such an amazing experience! Bob is truly a master of his craft and has endless patience. This course gives you a great insight into the basic skills and allows you to try them out for yourself. Bob provides a good balance between letting you practice yourself and being there to guide you, which makes the day very hands on and rewarding. I would definitely recommend this course to anybody with an interest in blacksmithing, I had no experience whatsoever going in but Bob put me at ease and the time just flew by."
"Just got back from a full day course with Bob. My son got me a voucher and then we decided to go together Excellent tution in a light-hearted manner. Bob had time to explain the skills required and show us how to carry them out. To our surprise we managed to complete a hanging basket bracket and a firepit poker.
Would recommend to anyone who is considering taking up a course. First rate cheers Bob for being so helpful and understanding"
"Bought this course for my son as a Xmas present and decided to go along to keep him company. So glad that I did, we both had an excellent day. Bob was extremely patient and gave us a great insight into 'hammer skills' in a short space of time. Bob makes everything look very easy, well I suppose 57 years of experience helps! He managed to tread a fine line between letting us have a go ourselves and giving enough input to make sure we came away with some recognisable objects at the end of the day. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in blacksmithing, a very worthwhile day."
"Had an absolutely fab time today on the one to one course. It was something I always wanted to try . Bob had a fabulous personality, he was very matter of fact if I made a mistake and was very patient with me. I must have driven him nuts but he was so mild mannered and explained what I did wrong and how I could improve in such a gentle way. He went at my pace and didn't rush anything. Bob is a great teacher with decades of black-smithing experience. What a fabulous and informative day. I would highly recommend this course."
