“Once again thank you very much for a great day yesterday. My wife loved her weather vane!”

“What a fantastic day I had. Can’t wait to return.”

“Just wanted to say thank you very much for me and my son’s recent forge experience, it was great, we both loved it. No one could believe what we had made, and in only one morning. Thank you again.”

“A magical day Richard, thank you so much. I got much more done than I expected.”

“Just wanted to thank you for a great day on Sunday. We both really enjoyed the experience and the things we were able to make with your considerable help to put our ideas into something tangible.”

“Thanks for great day Rich.  Really fun!”

“We just wanted to feedback to you what an amazing day we had with you at the forge.
An excellent way to spend a day, learning as you work, fun and educational and an eye opener to how hard a blacksmith had to work. A day spent creatively and we left with some great pieces and good memories.
We shall certainly be recommending it to friends and colleagues.”

“Thank you very much for a fantastic day. It was a memorable experience and we will enjoy our creations for years to come!”

“Thank you, the photos are fantastic and we both had a brilliant morning with you. You were great with my daughter: she loved the experience, so particular thanks from me for that. A pleasure to meet you.”

“Thank you for an excellent time yesterday. Enjoyable, instructive, satisfying, it was all there. The photographs are an excellent memory; I was so occupied I was unaware most of the time that you were circulating.”

“Just a quick note to say a huge thanks for today. Loved working with you ~ great company. I thoroughly enjoyed the training you gave me ~ done with style and patience!!! Really chuffed with my pizza tool too ~ a great memory from a great day. Thanks again ~ hope to see you again”

“Was really good fun – had a great time! Think my hands will ache tomorrow!”

“Thanks for photos and a brilliant day forging.”

“We wanted to write and say a big thank you for the wonderful forge experience yesterday!  Without a doubt it exceeded expectations, and you are truly a fabulous teacher and guide.”

“Just a little email to say thanks so much for the forge day last week that was an experience day. I am over the moon with the bulrushes that you helped guide me through making. You are very right when you say good things take longer to make than you might think. So pleased with the results and my wife could not believe it. Everyone that has come to our house has had to go down the garden to see them. So thanks once again for all your friendly help and expertise. I’m sure I’ll be back again sometime. Would definitely recommend you.”

“Great photos and fantastic day. Really enjoyed it and have enjoyed showing off the product of the day’s graft! Thanks again.”

“Thank you for a really wonderful day at the forge. I loved it – and I’d love to come back. For a complete beginner like me, you introduced just the right number of techniques to practice and put into use for the final products. My toasting fork is hanging up alongside the other fire irons, and the cabin hook is holding the back door open as I type. Everyone thinks they look great! So many thanks for a great day!”

“Cheers thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“I can’t do justice in expressing how much we enjoyed our day yesterday! Your instruction was perfect, the day was relaxed and super informative and we both felt supported yet free to design our way throughout. We’re so chuffed with what we made and are very grateful to you for such a magnificent experience! (the forearm knows it did some work yesterday! ha ha!) Thank you very much! Until next time!”

“Thanks for your patience, really enjoyed the day and am looking forward to another once my arm has recovered!”

“Thank you for a wonderful day.”

“I had a fantastic day, thank you…It was a great experience…I will certainly recommend the Forge Experience to friends and family.”

“He had a great day- really enjoyed it. He has been talking about it ever since to anyone who will listen!”

“Many thanks for an excellent day yesterday, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!”

“Photos are great, thank you for a brilliant day, would recommend this to anyone, you realise just how things were made in the past and just how hard you work at keeping these skills going. Well done and again a big thank you.”

“We both had a lovely day, and are very happy with our bits!”

“Thanks for a great day last Sunday, thoroughly enjoyed myself!”

“Many thanks for a fantastic day!! Very enjoyable, and something useful to take home! We will certainly recommend you to our friends.”

“Thanks again for the forging day this weekend.  We both got a lot out of it and I shall likely use some of these skills before long.”

“Thank you for the photographs.  May I take this opportunity to say how much I enjoyed my day with you, relearning, and improving upon, techniques that I had not used since my childhood – way back in the last millennium.  Your tutelage was excellent and the blisters (from wielding the hammer I hasten to add, not burns from the hot metal) are healing nicely.”

“I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you for such a memorable experience.  I have told just about everyone I know about how much fun I had.  Your patience and profesionalism were much appreciated, and I felt like I learned a lot.  All my friends were very impressed by my fork and poker.”

“Thank you for the whole experience you gave to L on Monday. I researched various places before finding you and am so glad I chose you. You gave him exactly what I was looking for. How many people get to achieve a childhood dream at the age of seventy? He couldn’t stop grinning on Monday evening! The fire irons are sitting proudly on our dining room hearth – a real talking point.”

“I would like to thank you for a brilliant day at the forge, it was a great experience to have one to one tuition. As an ex-toolmaker you think you know all about metal, but I have found the old way of forming metal. I had a wonderful day it will not be forgotten. Congratulation for a good day.”

“Thanks ever so much for the photos, and for today in general. We both had an incredible time.”

“T and I had a very fulfilling day, just what we wanted.  In fact, we got a lot further than we had expected.  I think we may come back later this year for a further day’s development.”

“B had an excellent day with you and really enjoyed making the wine rack. He certainly worked hard….his hands are covered in blisters! The wine rack is lovely and I really look forward to putting up in the dining room.”

“Just wanted to say thank you. My husband really enjoyed his day and has not stopped talking about it.”

“Many thanks for the great ‘Experience Day’.  I was really pleased to be taking not just one but two items home with me so I could share my newly found skills with family and friends – they are all suitably impressed.
Would love to arrange another day at the forge, once my blisters have healed!”

“Thanks for a very pleasant day on Saturday, we both enjoyed the experience immensely.”

“Thanks a lot for a brilliant day!”

“I would like to thank you again for a terrific day out. We had an extremely enjoyable day and my rams head poker stands proudly on display in my front room.”

“I absolutely loved my day at the forge. Your gentle manner and encouragement helped to make it a great experience. Many thanks for the great pictures.”

“My candle holder was tried and tested on our return, accompanied by a welcome bottle of wine!”

“Thank you so much for the ‘Experience’ yesterday. It is a something that I’ll always remember  and I was quite surprised that we managed to produce a finished article. Your patience and gentle guidance was much appreciated.”

“I had a really good day and enjoyed the experience. Maybe I’ll try again at some time!”

“The photos look great.  We both had a fantastic day, thank you very much”

“Thank you, he really enjoyed his day and is still talking about it! I know what to get him for his Birthday.”

“We had an absolutely brilliant day, and my Dad didn’t stop talking about it for ages afterwards!”

“Many thanks for today I really enjoyed it and the Mrs is very pleased with the wine rack!”

“I just wanted to say a big “thank you” for Saturday – I really enjoyed the forge experience and my banana tree has already been the object of much admiration!!”
