"My husband and I recently did this workshop and all I can say is WOW! We had such a great day, Jess and Tim were fantastic! Super supportive, really knowledgeable and so encouraging! I’ll be honest this was the first time I’ve lifted a hammer, and to be fair ached the next day! But as a female I was super proud of myself! We both had the best day and came away with a bottle opener that we were both so proud of! Thank you both so much 100% recommend! Becky and Gary! #getithot"

"I bought this as a gift for my partner. He had a great day. The level of teaching was very good and the team were very supportive. It is a beautiful setting and the food was amazing. He wants to come to do the 5 day course if you're getting it set up. "

"Hi Maria, Thank you for your great review, we really appreciate it! We hope to see your partner again! Kind Regards Jessica "

"My husband did this course on 20/04/24 and thoroughly enjoyed it. He says it was hard work and very intensive but very enjoyable and worthwhile. He made a beautiful decorative poker of which he is very proud, and rightly so. He says the 2 people running the course were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Five stars all round!"

"The blacksmithing experience was thoroughly enjoyed by the 4 of us, a day we'll never forget. Tim and Jessica were great, very thorough explanations and demonstrations of what to do. They're both incredibly friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We were kept well supplied with hot and cold drinks throughout the day, food was catered for by a little food place in the next village and was really good, especially the cakes. By the end of the day we'd all produced a fancy fire poker using many different blacksmithing techniques. Left at the end of the day wanting to do more! Would recommend this to anyone! 5 Star!"

Peak Blacksmithing Experience responded:

"Thank you so much for your review! We are very glad you enjoyed the day as much as we do. We hope to see you again! Kind Regards, Jessica"

"Had a fantastic day at Peak Blacksmithing learning a variety of blacksmithing techniques. The instructors were super friendly and, with the small group size, they were always on-hand to give guidance and encouragement. I think that everyone would get something from this experience - even those that don't consider themselves at all 'handy'."

"We had a really great day at Peak Blacksmithing, Jess and Tim were great, and came away with a poker that I'm really happy with (even though I burnt my scroll off, boo. Remember to watch your steel!) Highly recommended, looking forward to doing the knife making course at any point too."

"Booked for a birthday treat. Loved how friendly and supportive the environment was. We were all total beginners but Tim made it all look easy and was an excellent tutor. Plenty of food and drink. We all left with a handmade poker to demonstrate our new skills!"

Elaine and Charlie reviewed: Peak Blacksmithing Experience days

"The snow melted enough for the course to go ahead and we had a great day. Tim was a very informative instructor and demonstrated all the stages clearly and logically from fire lighting and management to all the blacksmithing techniques needed to make our fabulous pokers. Jess was very supportive and offered sound additional blacksmithing advise along the way and was a very hospitable host. We were supplied with tea, coffee, pork pie, lunch and cakes. Perfect. We definitely recommend this day. Thank you. "

Peak Blacksmithing Experience responded:

"Hi Elaine and Charlie, Thank you so much for the fabulous review, it's much appreciated! We are glad you both enjoyed the day. We hope to see you again on another course coming later this year. Take care Jessica and Tim "

"It was a great day. Exceeded my expectations, Tim was a brilliant tutor, very patient and explained and demonstrated everything fully so that you felt confident to try for yourself. Full experience of building a fire, fire and heat control, recognising when the work was ready and some of the techniques were well explained. The people were very friendly and the food and drink excellent. I would recemmend this day to everyone."

"Really enjoyable day. The instructor was great, very helpful and encouraging. I had problems hearing all that he was saying in the demonstrations as it was a noisy environment (also I wear hearings aids). I would recommend this experience day to anyone. Thank you"

"A fab day of tuition from Phil and Jessica. There were lots of new techniques to learn, but everything was very clearly explained and demonstrated with plenty of 1-2-1 attention. I think we all ended up having made something we could be proud of?"

"My son had 2 days at the anvil with Jessica. He throughly enjoyed both days. Jessica explained everything to him really well. Showed my son different techniques to twist, bent and move the iron. My son made a beautiful candle holder, knife, BBQ fork and Neil (a snail). My son can't wait to be back. ( He also loved the lunches provided). Thank you for an amazing experience :-)"

"We had an excellent day at Peak Blacksmithing, Jess was a great tutor, showing us the whole process from lighting the forge, using the tools then through the different techniques to make a toasting fork. There was a relaxed atmosphere with Jess not far away to help if needed. With no previous experience of blacksmithing I thoroughly enjoyed my day and would recommend Peak Blacksmithing to anybody!??"

"Jess is a highly talented tutor who adapts the teaching to your level of expertise, which in my case is zero! Even if you're not that practical you'll be carefully guided to make something to be proud of and if you are, the world's your oyster as to what she can have you making! The demonstrations are fascinating of what is an amazing craft. Had a great experience day and would highly recommend it to anyone!"

"What a great time I had, my other half booked this experience day for me and it didn't disappoint. The ability of the teachers astounded me with how easy they made it all look. The facilities were lovely and the food served was really nice, set in great surroundings to top it off. I can assure you I'll be booking onto another course in the near future. Thanks again Andy"
