Friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic staff who brilliantly guided us through the process of making our wedding rings. Hard work at times, but excellent fun. You can make daggers, swords, kitchen knives, axes, and other stuff too. Can't recommend the place enough.

This time we came back for my partner to make a hammer. Fab Health and Safety briefing from Joe to start, who balanced humour and essential info nicely. The level of craftsmanship that Sam demonstrated was an actual marvel. My partner was in awe of the skills on show and the patience taken to actually teach him and share the knowledge. At no point did he take over and the piece was very definitely made by my partner however, he guided and encouraged beautifully. To say we enjoyed it would be an understatement.
