Fantastic Experience
28 February 2022
The chaps at the Oldfield Forge were extremely welcoming and very talented. I enjoyed every aspect of creating something from scratch and the tuition was excellent, great mindful therapy too. I wanted to make two candle sticks and am very proud of the achievement. Would thoroughly recommend the experience and especially at Oldfield Forge. Lovely atmosphere, fab facilities and friendly faces. It is a great birthday gift I shall never forget.
