R. Morris reviewed: Axe making course

"Had a fantastic day at the forge hand forging axes with a couple of friends. Andy was an amazing tutor, explaining things with ease and providing demonstrations throughout. The process was broken down into stages with breaks in between, and assistance was provided to help people catch up and correct mistakes ensuring we all left with a fantastic piece. Lovely to meet you, thanks again Andy!"

Highfield forge responded:

" It was a fun session and I'm so glad you injoyed your time in the forge. I look forward to seeing again for your next challenge."

"As a complete novice I was able to make an axe. Expert teaching (it had to be), I went from wondering if I would have to buy one on the way home to making my own working axe. Ace. Do it."

Sam reviewed: Hand forged rustic knife course

"I bought the knife making course for my boyfriend for Christmas & he took part in the course yesterday. He thoroughly enjoyed the whole course, learnt lots of new things & enjoyed the one to one tuition with Andy. He loved it that much, he said he wanted to make another knife straightaway so he could practise what he had learnt! I have already purchased the axe making course for his birthday to try next time & he is looking forward to that! Would highly recommend."

Carrick reviewed: Axe making course

"Fantastic day, and Andy was a brilliant teacher. Perfect pacing, excellent instruction, really good explanations of the 'why' as well as the 'how'. Thorough on the safety side without micromanaging or being over the top, and very happy to answer questions no matter how stupid they might seem! I thought at a couple of intervals I'd made a mess of the axe, but with some reassuring guidance it's actually turned out really nicely - definitely did, as the description text says, "go away with a very nice axe and a big smile on my face""
