Here's what some of our customer's have to say about Fallen Willow Forge.


" We saw John's work at the Sheepdog Trials and loved it, and contacted him about doing a coat rack for us. He was wonderfully responsive, sent us pics as he made the piece, and provided us with a stunning and well-made coat rack that we'll love for years to come! Highly recommend. "

" So grateful to have spent the day with my 15 year old son at The Fallen Willow Forge doing some blade smithing. A big thank you to John for being such a patient and passionate mentor. My son and I highly recommend John and Fallen Willow Forge to anyone who’s ever wondered about a forging experience. "

P.J. Staudinger

" My friends and I enjoyed a forging class with John. An incredibly fun experience for the four of us who have no previous experience blacksmithing. John was incredibly knowledgeable and thorough as he walked us through each step of the forging process.

Thanks to John for such a fun weekend. I’d highly recommend taking his workshops if you’re looking to try something new! "

M. Lawrence

" Every experience at Fallen Willow Forge is memorable and rewarding. You get to experience history first hand as you learn the ancient art of blacksmithing with a kind, gentle and talented instructor. You couldn't ask for a better experience. "
