I had a great time doing this course with Dave; great teaching style making sure I knew exactly what to do at all times (including quick demonstrations), while not being too over the shoulder and stifling.
Very happy with the end product too. 10/10 experience

Got this for an Anniversary present for my husband who loves watching Forged in Fire and I couldn’t wait for his reaction when he got home.
He absolutely loved it, it couldn’t have been better and the knife he made was amazing. He also couldn’t praise the instructor Andy enough who he said was very helpful and knowledgable.
A very enjoyable day and he can’t wait to go back so I will definitely get him on the Axe making course next.
Thank you so much x

Exactly what we were hoping for from the course. Challenging and quite intense but pleased with the results.

What an amazing experience, i spent the day making a one of a kind chef knife under the skilled guidance of Dave and Andy.
The wealth of knowledge, techniques and skills learnt from the day are something ill never forget. As a chef and craftsman myself, i cant say enough how good these gents are at what they do. Ill be saving up for my next trip no doubts about that.

What a fantastic experience! Spent a great day learning a number of processes and techniques, and ended up with a highly personalised kitchen knife that will last a lifetime. Dave and Andy were great, clearly explaining each step, ensuring you understood the process without hovering over your shoulder all day. Would highly recommend this course, and will be checking out the etsy shop in the future too!

It was a brilliant experience at Highfield Forge, Andy was welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. He and Dave gave clear guidance, instructions and support without doing it for you; really made you feel accomplished. Forged an axe that I've already used to chop logs for the fire. Highly recommend the experience.

Excellent course, With Andys' brilliant tuition I am not sure you can fail. Each step clearly explained and demonstrated. Ended up with a really good axe, not perfect, but I am a beginner.

Really enjoyed my dad at the forge. Andy was a really good instructor; explained what was happening at each stage, nice clear instructions then left you to have a try for yourself. Really pleased with how the axe turned out 🪓

My husband just finished his axe today with Andy and it came out perfect. The teaching was very hands on and we enjoyed every second. Andy is super friendly making the experience worth while. We look forward to coming back soon to make something else!

Andy & Dave are friendly, knowledgeable, patient & skilled. Course was fantastic, end product was fantastic even with the added curveball of the current safety guidelines to be adhered to. Highly recommend Highfield Forge
