It’s my third time Blacksmithing with Chris. It is always a relaxed, fun and very rewarding day. Chris is a very patient, engaging teacher who is always keen to share his expertise. Always a fantastic day.


What a fantastic day! Chris is an outstanding teacher, passionate about his craft and amazing at sharing his knowledge and helping to develop skills – and a really nice guy!Chris has clearly put a lot of work into making the course fun, productive and safe. I had a great time, learned loads and have mementos to remind me of it. I can see why he is booked up so far in advance, and it is totally worth the wait.Thanks so much Chris, I had a brilliant time.

Booked a half a day course wanted to try something different, the venue was just a few miles away in a nice quiet area just away from the busy rat race. Chris was very welcoming and after a short induction we were away making a keyring which involved many different ways of shaping the hot steel. Chris took his time to work with me at my pace and was very informative all through the course. We had a good chat while we working and it made a very enjoyable morning. I was very happy with the finished keyring and amazed how many different stages we went through including waxing the final stage. I would recommend Chris to everyone good friendly knowledgeably instructor. Give it a go you won’t be disappointed.

Absolutely cracking day……. I was given this as a birthday gift by some of my friends and I was not sure what to expect but I needn’t have worried as Chris is fantastic teacher and great company as well, and the fact that I was able to make and take a couple of pieces was a real bonus. Well done Chris you are a credit to your profession.
