An excellent course, well instructed and paced, really enjoyable with a knowledgeable and friendly instructor. I did the course with a friend and each of us came away with a beautiful poker and hook to display it on that we made during the day; great mementos of an amazing day.

Response from Hedge Ironworks:

Thank you so much Liz for your kind words! I look forward to seeing you both again if you decide to come back for the Rose making course. All the very best, Jake.

What a terrific day! Me and my Mother decided to attend this course after watching a show about bladesmithing. With the help of Jake we were able to make our very own knives!
I would like to say a big thank you to Jake for such a wonderful experience and a chance to ignite our passion on a whole new level!
His level of experience and warm personality made it a day we will never forget! Thank you again.

Response from Hedge Ironworks:

My husband and I (both late 50s) did this course a few weeks ago. We had an absolute blast ! Jake is a fantastic tutor and will guide you through each step of the process and ensure you produce something wonderful to take home. It was a great day and just what we needed after lockdown. I'd recommend this course to anyone who wants to have a go ... you will surprise yourself in how much you can achieve. We will be back for another course soon.

This course is brilliant! My boyfriend and I (both 18) recently attended and had the best time... cannot emphasise enough how Jake is a wonderful teacher, really patient and fun and clearly very passionate about his craft. At no point did we ever feel particularly unsafe or like we didn't know what we were doing because of the clear demonstration and instructions beforehand. Would definitely reccomend this course!

What a great experience! My son and I recently attended Jake's have-a-bash course. No blacksmithing experience between the two of us, but through a well designed course and outstanding instruction from Jake, we completed some pretty good looking pokers and hooks. Jake explained and demonstrated every step of the process and then let us have a go. He was always by our side to provide feedback and guide us in the right direction. Looking forward to taking more of his classes in the future!

I booked this course as a surprise for my husbands birthday, we both had an absolutely fantastic day! Jake is a brilliant tutor, very friendly & patient! We will definitely be back next year, and we would highly recommend “give it a bash” with Jake!

We did a one day knife making course: Jake was great, extremely knowledgeable and talented and a great teacher. Jake adapted the course to better suit our needs without any complaint or hesitation. I would highly recommend this course or the blacksmiths course to anyone who is interested. The work shop is well equipped and in a beautiful location. 5 stars

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!
