A little tight place to work but the apprentice helped us out a lot A weird place to work you wouldn’t know that the forge was even there it was difficult to find at first. Not sure the price is right but the experience was fun.

Charlie and Rachel were great to learn from. It was amazing how easy to learn some of the basics and even make a decorative pot s-hook in just a short time. I'm looking forward to working with them in the future.
