What a great day my son and I had casting bronze axe heads. Johnathon was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend and I will be sharing my position experience with family and friends. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable learning experience. Robert & Dominic

Jonny was an excellent teacher. We all cast, poured and finished our own bronze axe heads during the workshop. There was plenty of time for questions and note taking and I encourage anyone who is thinking of investing in their own kit to do this course with Jonny first. It's excellent value for money, extremely informative, and will give you a real insight into important aspects of small workshop foundry such as safety, setup costs and the experience of being around hot, molten bronze.
