Sam reviewed: Blacksmithing Course (one to one) in a traditional forge on Dartmoor

"I did this course a few days ago, and it was everything I hoped it would be! From learning how to build up and maintain the fire, correct management of the temperature so as to not melt the Steel (which I may have done), and forging my own hook to take home alongside some other pieces, this was a brilliant day. I learned a lot from Greg and it has really solidified my desire to start blacksmithing as a hobby. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in the traditional way of blacksmithing, and anyone wanting a really good day out. I had no previous experience at all before going, but Greg has a no-pressure approach to his teaching, and can help you have a great time."

"Had a brilliant day learning the incredible art of blacksmithing and left with a forged poker I was proud of. Greg is a very friendly and encouraging teacher who will effectively help and guide you during the project while also stepping back and letting you express your own ideas for your craft. I couldn't recommend the course enough, I had a great time."
