Blacksmithing workshop feedback

Last Saturday Martin led a workshop of four people through some basic forging techniques. We had this really lovely feedback from Tom O’Driscoll who attended, which we wanted to share. The workshop had been a surprise Christmas present from Tom’s wife. If you are interested in booking onto one of our blacksmithing workshops there is limited availability at the moment due to their popularity – click here for a link to our website. Please sign up to the Ironart newsletter to be the first to hear about more dates as we announce them.

“I really, really enjoyed the day with Ironart.  It was a hugely enjoyable and informative experience.  With just 4 of us we were able to learn and practice in an intimate and constructive setting and develop some new acquaintances –without being lost in a crowd, as I have been on other activities.  I thought your administrative arrangements, from joining instructions to bacon butties, were spot on and I have already highly recommended the day to friends and family. I particularly enjoyed freestyling it later on in the session, making a few pieces for the home.  I admired the way we were not corralled into making something specific and that Martin was just keen to help us realise our ideas.  Great day all round.  VMT   Tom O’D”
