Simon & Linda reviewed: An Introduction to bronze casting

"Linda and I really enjoyed our "Introduction to Bronze Age Casting" ... especially given Jonny's passion and experience for the subject. His knowledge doesn't stop at Bronze Casting though, we also covered a number of other subjects such as the playing of Aboriginal instruments, Flint Knapping, identifying fossils as well as "technology" in the Neanderthal, Bronze and Iron ages. Our Bronze Axe Heads currently have pride of place on our desks and we're hoping to return to participate in the other courses that Jonny offers."

Jonny Crafts Things responded:

"Glad you enjoyed the day and great chatting with you."

Jeremy reviewed: An introduction to flint knapping

"Jonny's intro to flint knapping was excellent. Just the right mix of teaching - the theory is more interesting than you'd think - and practical, fun, learning. If bashing rocks together is your idea of a good time, then this is highly recommended."

Jonny Crafts Things responded:

"Glad you enjoyed the course."

Dom Clarke reviewed: An Introduction to bronze casting

"Bought as a gift for my dad. We both had a great time learning about the dark art of metal! Jonathan was a fantastic host and teacher, happy to answer any questions and offer a real insight into the process and the history behind it. A fantastic first taste of bronze"
