By profession Andrew Green, creator of Chimps Forge, is a tooling engineer within the injection moulding industry, based in the Automotive sector, a career that has spanned over the last 30 years.
A couple of years ago he was lucky enough to enroll on a 2 days forging experience where he had the good fortune to work alongside a local blacksmith and has never looked back since. He invested in a small forge and workshop (garage) and has been tinkering away ever since making things ranging from tables, hooks, flowers and companion sets for starters.
After being made redundant during the Covid 19 pandemic he decided to take that leap of faith taking what was a hobby into full time forging. This now allows his creative side to go from idea’s in his head to actual decorative pieces that now take pride of place in people’s homes.
