Lisa reviewed: Introduction to Epoxy Resin Block Casting

"It was a very warm welcome from Dave on a cold day. Great course , we had the opportunity to use different equipment and see the full process of making a resin art piece. Loved the whole experience and would highly recommend "

Joe osborne reviewed: Kitchen Knife Course

"Got this as a Christmas present and was an all round fantastic experience! David was brilliant at taking us (one other person on my course) through every step of turning a piece of sheet steel and a block of wood into a fully functioning high carbon kitchen knife I am proud to display and use. Gave us options on blade shape and wood material to make your knife one of a kind, highly recommend the experience. "

Hand forged Yorkshire responded:

Chris Watson reviewed: Kitchen Knife Course

"I bought this course as a Xmas gift for my husband Chris. He thoroughly enjoyed the day and came home with a beautiful handmade knife. We would not hesitate to recommend this experience. Dave Brearey is not only a very good instructor, he is a genuinely nice guy. He explained everything very clearly and demonstrated the techniques required to complete the project. We wish Dave all the luck for the future. Thanks Chris Watson"

Robert Chan (Northampton) reviewed: Kitchen Knife Course

"I attended the course yesterday and came away not only with a beautifully hand-crafted K-tipped kitchen knife, but also a permanent grin on my face. Dave is a very methodical and meticulous tutor with plenty of experience and more importantly, patience. I have never done metalwork before but Dave was always there guiding me through each step of the way through shaping of the blade, forging and immersing it in oil to cool, shaping & sanding the handle and finally hand-polishing the blade. He even allowed me to make this into a single-beveled Kiritsuke knife. I have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone who is looking for a rewarding experience. Many thanks, Dave! "

Hand forged Yorkshire responded:

" Many thanks indeed for leaving such a lovely review Robert, made my day reading it and is greatly appreciated. So glad you enjoyed the day and you are happy with your knife. You did a fantastic job and created a lovely knife with really clean lines, very well done Kindest regards Dave"
