Dareen Taylor reviewed: Couples Date Day- Best Date Ever!- Blacksmithing Experience Day

"This was a fantastic experience day that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. John was a great host, friendly, flexible, supportive (even when I messed up) and in the end I felt like we had a real taste of blacksmithing and the joy of making something with fire and hammers! Would definately recommend to anyone with even a passing interest. John's passion for the subject is clear and will inspire you"

Sian & Stef reviewed: Forge Your Own Wedding Rings- Blacksmithing Experience Day

"Just finished making our wedding rings with Jon at Kerr Forge. We'd previously visited on a knife making course and both times Jon was an excellent host and a great teacher - knowledgeable and patient. We are both so happy with the rings we've made and can't wait for the wedding so we can start wearing them. Thanks Jon! "

Dan reviewed: Forge a Knife- Blacksmithing and Knifemaking Experience Day

"We had a fantastic day. It was a great experience. I absolutely love learning new things and Jon is an excellent teacher. His mix of engineering expertise, chemistry and physics knowledge, mastery of the smithing toolset, wonderful personality and friendliness was just great! Also his wife’s sausage rolls are to die for! I have already recommended this course to a load of friends. I will definitely bring my son for a smithing course and will be back to make a Damascus Steele knife. "

Jon Martindale reviewed: Forge a Knife- Blacksmithing and Knifemaking Experience Day

"Bought a one-day knife making course for my brother and I, as a birthday present for him. Had a great day with Jon at the Kerr Forge. We both made excellent, fully complete, knives by the end of the day and had a real laugh with Jon whilst making them. Jon used just the right level of instruction and intervention for us. Helping when we needed it, and then just letting us get on with it when we were happy. Would definitely recommend"
