Weekend introductory blacksmithing course 'O' at Quinnell School of Blacksmithing

Absolutely fabulous ! I can't believe how much we achieved and how quickly we threw ourselves into it. It's quite astounding what we were able to learn and make in such a short space of time thanks to Peats expert tuition. Whilst physical it is very rewarding and it certainly helps you sleep well! Thanks also to the hospitality of the Quinnell family and for the splendid spread of food. Loved every minute of it … a very special weekend.

I can’t imagine how a course could be any better. All aspects were perfect. When I show people what I achieved, frankly, people can’t believe it. Peat and Eamonn were simply top drawer and the most amazing hosts.

I did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The facilities, surroundings, course and teachers were excellent. It was such a pleasure and honour to be amongst and guided by renown experts in Peat and Eamonn, true experts in the field of black smithing. Richard Quinnell made us all so welcome and worked hard to ensure we were attended to. A fantastic course that I would highly recommend to all ages. Malcolm.

At 15, Sam's ambition is to be a blacksmith and despite a small burn, this experience has made him even more determined. The results that he managed to produce were stunning for someone with no previous experience and he can't wait to join another course in the future. The organisation and tuition was excellent and there was a fantastic friendly atmosphere. Very dirty, very tired, very happy!

I bought this course for my husband as a special birthday gift so although I did not participate (he will do his own review) I can say how much he enjoyed the whole experience. “Fantastic tuition in a beautiful setting with a great group.” He found it interesting, fun, rewarding and satisfying.
From my point of view the booking experience was efficient, friendly and helpful. If you are looking for an unusual and very special gift for someone I can heartily recommend this course.

What a great course! The tutor Peter and assistant Eamonn were great at keeping the group working with simple blocks of instructions we could all follow and produce a surprising amount of finished work.
I really enjoyed it. If you like hitting things with a hammer - this is the course for you.

This course is great! It will take you from never having picked up hot steel, to creating delicate and intricate pieces you thought were only seen in shops! It’s amazingly well run and everyone goes above and beyond in terms of hosting this great course. I couldn’t recommend it more.

The course was perfect for beginners regardless of ability. The tutors were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, providing clear demonstrations and always at hand to provide help and guidance. I got to make a number of 'objects' to take home which were far beyond my expectations!
Huge thanks to Ambrose and Eamon whose enthusiasm and patience made for a very satisfying and unforgettable weekend (along with heaps of food and cakes from the lovely Quinnel family).

Thank you for an excellent weekend. I learnt a great deal and I came away with two beautiful candlesticks.
Thank you to Ambrose and Eamonn as well as Richard and his wife for making the weekend so enjoyable.

I have read and wholeheartedly agree with all the reviews above! I too am preparing for my own forge!!
My signed copy of Peat's excellent book is already well thumbed and plans afoot for some projects.

Excellent course. Challenging but enjoyable. Peat and Eammon were first class tutors with the experience needed to help the students achieve results that at first seemed to be beyond the ability of complete novices!

I loved learning about working with metal, it was a great 3 days of HOT learning.
Metal is unbelievably flexible and easy to work with as long as it’s ORANGE HOT.
