The best birthday present ever! I loved every minute of my time with Julian. Aside from being an accomplished blacksmith artist and welder he is a fascinating person. Julian puts you at your ease and has a relaxed teaching style. As a teacher myself I appreciated his patience and humour. I can now weld confidently and look forward to progressing my skills. I would definitely recommend this course! Thank you Julian x

If you want to learn how to weld I doubt that it would be possible to improve on Julian’s course. He is personable, interesting and as an award winning craftsman highly knowledgeable. In addition his forge and workshop are extraordinary, like a visit to the national trust. I’ve always wanted to learn how to weld and doubted I’d ever manage it but now I’m confident. If there was a score above excellent I would have ticked it.

Just finished a 1 day welding course with Julian, who is not only very patient and explains and demonstrates things very clearly; he is flexible and happy to modify things to deal with me being left handed and also coping with my varifocal glasses issues.
He's also pretty good at making proper tea on a mug too!
Thoroughly recommended!

I attended Julian’s two day course and it was amazing!

We made a tree form bird feeder. Julian showed me how to use the forge, control the temperature of the metal and how to shape it. His knowledge and experience is vast and he was generous with his time. Over the two days we worked together to forge all the parts for the feeder.

Julian was friendly and an excellent teacher, I would have no problem recommending him to anyone of any experience.

A day well spent! I learned so much from Julian on the one day introduction to welding. I began the day as a complete novice, having never touched a welding torch, but left with the confidence to undertake some welding projects on my own. Julia is a very good tutor with the patience to help you develop your skills, as he shares his enthusiasm for working with metal. I can thoroughly recommend this course, as I not only learnt much, but also enjoyed every moment of the day.

Me and my husband did the mig welding course with Julian and had such a great day we booked the blacksmith course straight away. Julian is a great teacher he is encouraging and helpful and really knows his stuff. We produced some fantastic pieces we are really proud of, we cannot recommend any course with Julian highly enough.

Absolutely incredible and fascinating day with Julian. A thoroughly passionate and friendly guy who couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming to both my wife and I. We went away with a beautiful piece of functional art. Julian was brilliant and really helped us bring out our best and walk away with something to be proud of. Couldn't recommend this course and Julian enough.

I can thoroughly recommend Julian's courses. Had the one day blacksmith course and learnt an invaluable amount of information and technique, which has urged me to consider blacksmithing as a long term hobby.
It is evident Julian has a tremendous amount of knowledge, skill and patience, and is also a perfectionist who likes to see things through to completion.
Thanks Julian, thoroughly enjoyed today.

The best teachers are knowledgable and passionate about thier subject. Julian is both and it shows. I chose an ambitious forge (coal tongs) but my slow progess was accommodated. And the end product i am very proud of. I hope to be back for a poker!

I spent a fantastic day learning how to weld, Julian provides a short theory lesson followed by plenty of practical experience, providing guidance on every weld.

Fantastic day Julian, I learnt loads.

Just got home from a great day with Julian! We ‘forged’ (sorry) a great working relationship and I had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative day.
Never done black-smithery before and Julian was very patient resulting in me leaving with a most impressive toasting fork that I can honestly say that I produced myself! I wholeheartedly recommend this course ... he makes a cracking brew too!!
