"Fantastic course, it allowed me to experience what was required to make a hatchet with only a small rectangular bit of iron. I would highly recommend this and I certainly hope to do similar courses in the future."

"Was bought this as a birthday present, fuelled by ideas gained from watching far too much "Forged In Fire". Had a few ideas of what I wanted to make, but well aware I had no idea what was realistic in the time available and with a beginner's skillset. Jack was very open and friendly, tailoring his tutoring to my mechanical background and once the basics were gone through, helping quickly decide on a bigger piece to work on for the day (an axe head in this case). He also makes a mean cup of tea! Very happy with what I achieved for the day coupled with an increased knowledge of the techniques and processes involved in metalwork, and made a few family members and friends quite jealous in the process. I'd highly recommend this for any skill level, if you have even a passing level of interest in hammering chunks of metal into useful and interesting shapes. It's a pretty decent bicep workout, too..."

"My husband LOVED his day with Jack Waygood - 100% recommend to anyone considering. Jack has trained all over the world and as an artist blacksmith, as well as architectural blacksmith has incredible talent. My husband really enjoyed his teaching and company and said he has an incredible set up and learned a lot. Thanks for a great day Jack! "

"I bought this course to make some props for my Dungeons and Dragons game and I got exactly what I wanted, During which I made a Hook as a beginning project, A signet ring with a sun engraving and another project. It didnt feel too professional/strict, it felt very casual and calm and not that I had to rush to get it finished within a certain time. Jack was a kind instructor and gave me enough space to do it at my own pace without leaving me clueless as to what to do. I didnt have an exact design for what I wanted so when I got there we sketched something that fit what I wanted. I wasnt available for any of the given dates so we talked and were able to change it to a monday. Overall It was a very fun course and im glad I did it and now have experience in this skill, I will likely get it again sometime in the future"
