Fin reviewed: Axe Making Course - One Day Blacksmithing Experience

"Excellent course! Tom is a very good teacher, lovely guy, answered my endless questions and had loads of cool things to show and talk about. The course itself was great, it was one on one which is rare, and meant that the experience wasn't diluted or crowded at all. Couldn't be happier with the final product, it looked (almost) just like the one advertised with the course and I'm looking forward to using it for years to come. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to have a guided hands on blacksmithing experience and come away with a cool and functional product."

"I had a fantastic day. Tom was very knowledgeable and incredibly patient. It was fascinating to follow all the steps to make a finished article - I now understand why hand forged items at craft fairs appear so pricey! I made a wall hook as a practice piece to warm up, then spent the rest of the day making the axe. The final result was amazing. Really pleased."

"Tom was a fantastic instructor. I had never done anything like this before but he led me step by step to make things I wouldn’t have thought possible in the time. I would highly recommend this course to anyone intrigued by the idea of the blacksmith’s craft. "
