I had a great time making a surprisingly good looking fire poker and knife. Jake exhibits an interesting balance of technical knowledge, enthusiam and an artists eye for detail. Thoroughly recommend the experience.

Simply brilliant. An excellent day for me and my 15 year old son Harrison, each of us making two knives. After making one under close supervision, after lunch we each made our second pretty much on our own, which was really satisfying. I wished I could have made a third and a fourth. At home later I used one to prepare our tea, and we used them all for eating! A great experience, thanks Jake!

Jake was really accommodating and enthusiastic in helping me with a specific metalworking technique I wanted to try (mokume gane), he had done his own research into the technique which I really appreciated. We also had some time to do some traditional blacksmithing at the end! Jake was a patient and thorough teacher, and I would definitely recommend this course!

Me and my lad had a great day blade smithing and came away with some nice pieces. Would definitely recommend as we learnt some interesting techniques moving the metal, and my lad had a knack of using the powerhammer.

An excellent session pitched at just the right level, Jake allowed me to work by myself after demonstrating how to create my designs in metal, but was ready to step in when I started to make mistakes. I came away with the confidence to tackle making more of the brackets by myself at home.

My Dad, brother and I had a fantastic day trying our hand at blacksmithing. Jake is a great teacher; he made us feel really welcome, is very patient, and couldn't have done more to make sure we had an enjoyable time. He is clearly very passionate and skilled at what he does. I would thoroughly recommend this course if you want to try a traditional (and fun!) craft in a beautiful setting and produce some lovely pieces. 10/10!

Epic time - thanks Jake!
Despite having no experience of being in a forge I walked out with two beautiful and functional bits of kit (in no small part due to Jake's help). I'd definitely recommend this course!

Really enjoyable day with Jake, a real craftsman. Goals set for the day were realistic and achievable and good advice along the way. Good approach where you watch Jake carry out the process first and then you try to emulate it, with pointers from him. Safety at the forefront of everything, which was good to see. Jake is a pleasure to be around and a calm and friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to going back to do other courses.

Slightly apprehensive having never done this before, however Jake’s clear instructions, calm demeanour and an obvious passion for his craft made it such an enjoyable day. We enjoyed making our pokers and knives and look forward to our next challenge. Give it a go! It is certainly value for money and Jake is fantastic teacher 🔨🔥😁

We (my 16 year-old son) and I both thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the day. We got stuck in straight away and were very proud of the results. Jake was a clear and enthusiastic tutor and knew just when to step in to help, and when to step back and let us flail a little :-) We also enjoyed getting to explore a range of tools/techniques throughout the session.
Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a taste of metalworking!

Had a super day! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Jake! Jake is a patient teacher whose clear expertise helped us create some beautiful metal work that initially I thought would be beyond me. We left with smiles on our faces and some treasures. Would highly recommend the course to everyone and am very tempted to have another go.

Really informative and thoroughly enjoyable practical day with Jake’s easy-going, friendly and reassuring guidance.
So absorbing that the day disappeared all too quickly and would not hesitate to go again sometime and recommend to anyone else too.

Booked this day course for myself and my friend, we had an absolute blast! Jake is a brilliant teacher and walked us through each step with clear, easy to follow instructions. Highly recommend this course for a bit of a different day out, plus you get to take home your own fire poker and knife! Jake is a very talented blacksmith and if he runs anymore courses like this one I'll be signing up for them.

I had a brilliant day ‘Having a Bash’ at Blacksmithing. Jake was a wonderful teacher - very friendly, encouraging and patient. His clear instructions and ‘how to’ demonstrations quickly made me feel more confident about handling hot metal and hitting it with hammers. I was amazed to make anything in a day, let alone to manage a passable poker with twirly bits and fancy twists, as well as a useable knife with a scrolled handle. An amazing day, I highly recommend it.
