Phil Stemp reviewed: Welding For Beginners

"Great day, excellent tuition and guidance from the instructors. Nice build up from just putting down a weld through to making joins then actually making something you can take away. Very rewarding to come away with a new skill to build on. Thanks to the guys from Phoenix Forge."

Mark reviewed: Bladesmithing / Knife Making Day

"I had a great day, William was an excellent tutor and explained each step in the process clearly. After each step was demonstrated I was given the freedom to get stuck into the task and William was there if I need help or guidance. Really chuffed with the knife that I produced. I highly recommend this course and I will do another"

Alan C reviewed: Axe Making Class

"Had a brilliant day hammering a lump of metal into an axe. Really friendly / relaxed environment and first timers like me were made to feel welcome. As other reviews have said it's fairly physically demanding and it helps if you can aim a sledge hammer but Will stepped in if anyone needed a bit of help. Highly recommend this course."

Mark Bendrien reviewed: Sword Making Class

"This was an amazing experience. William and Hugh were great, patient and clear direction and friendly the we're structured enough for us to learn but gave us the freedom to create something that was unique to us. Highly recommend phoenix forge!"
