Blacksmith experience day in Brentford, London

I had an amazing time on the course with Neil. He is a great teacher and helped us craft two amazing pieces, both useful and nice to look at. Would definitely recommend to anyone! Neil really did a great job of sorting and fixing mistakes I had made to finish the course with two amazing pieces I will treasure for ever.

This was an excellent day. Neil welcomed us and introduced us to the art of blacksmithing and was an excellent guide and teacher. I had been looking forward to the day for some time but enjoyed it even more than I thought I would and was surprised at how much we learned and what we were able to make on the day.

I cannot recommend this day highly enough, it was a great introduction to the art.

This was an excellent course and a fantastic day. We really enjoyed learning some blacksmith techniques from Niel - who was welcoming, helpful and a great teacher.

We were amazed at what we were able to achieve throughout the day and came away with a hook and fire poker.

We would recommend this highly and would even like to do it again ourselves!

An excellent day as a "Blacksmith", which had always been an ambition of mine to try, but I never had the courage until my wife gave me a birthday present of this days experience.
Neil is a great teacher with an ability to get the most out of people. He is patient, encouraging, skillful and very supportive.
Cannot recommend the day highly enough.

Neil is a patient and very capable instructor and the day was very enjoyable. There was a lot of one to one time because Neil takes a max of 2 trainees on the day. If I had access to a forge near my home I would certainly want to do this more often - it's extremely rewarding.

Had a great time at Hot Metal Works - Neil certainly knows his craft, and his teaching was easy to grasp and I left extremely proud of my fire poker.

Would recommend to anyone looking to try metalworking and making something substantial with their own hands.

Had a great day at the forge. Neil was helpful and patient, going at our pace, offering encouragement and advice and helping us to understand how to work hot metal. I never knew I would be so proud of a poker! I would recommend this to anyone.

Absolutely fantastic day, Neil has a real passion for blacksmithing and this came across in the way he instructs, really teaching you how to work the metal rather than make work of it.

I never knew that hitting hot metal with a hammer would be so rewarding, but I’m very proud of the pieces I have produced, I just need a fire now to stoke with my poker.

I had a really fun time with Neil. He's a friendly, knowledgeable blacksmith. Neil is easygoing and helpful; he was fine going at my pace.

It's a bit pricey, but worth it for a nice day out, using your hands, making something interesting and useful.
