"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."
"Bought this for my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. The pride on his face when he showed me the knife he made was well worth the money I paid for the experience. He’s talking about going back to do another course - thanks for a lovely day Andy!"
Highfield forge responded:
" I'm so glad he enjoyed his time in the forge, I look forward to seeing you in the future.
"Thank you for the education with an axe to show for the experience, Andy is very knowledgeable and experienced, the workshop is fantastic space most of the tools/machines are bespoke, all I can say is i will be booking some more of this as soon as I can, the wife couldn’t wait to get her hands on my new chopper."
"I had an excellent day on the axe making course. The group size was small so it was easy to ask questions - Andy has a wealth of knowledge and skill that he readily shared. Highly recommended and a great day out, thank you Andy!"
"Bought this for me and my brother
We had a great time Andy was great at showing us all the technical aspects of the forging. Truly a great experience and we both can not wait to book another course at the Highfield Forge.
Thank you Highfield Forge ????"
"I would highly recommend the axe-making course run by Andy. Great, clear instruction that makes it enjoyable even if going in with no prior experience. Having your own axe at the end is a great bonus too!"
"A great and fascinating experience.
The whole process was very well explained and I'm chuffed to bits with my self made parachord handled knife.
All thanks to Andrew
An ideal dad and lad day out.
"I bought this course as a Christmas gift for my partner and I'm so glad I did. He was over the moon with his day and his finished axe. Andy made him feel welcome and passed on lots of knowledge in this field (which is a massive positive for my partner). This course is fantastic value for money and would definitely recommend."
"A fantastic workshop. Andy is a great tutor, really knowledgeable, friendly and keen to ensure you leave with a product you are happy with. Both myself and my Dad had a whale of a time.
I would definitely go do another course at Highfield Forge and recommend to anyone."
"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."
"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""
"Bought this for my Dad for Christmas as he loves Forged in Fire. He came out beaming and really chuffed with the knife he had made. He said Andy was very knowledgable and down to earth! Would recommend to everyone!"
