Hi I’m Andrew Green
The creativity behind Chimps Forge.
I’m 48 and originally from Todmorden but have spent the last 20 years living Cleckheaton .
By profession I’m 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 I was lucky enough to enroll on a 2 days forging experience where I had the good fortune to work alongside a local blacksmith and have never looked back since.
I invested in a small forge and workshop (garage) and have 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 I decided to take that leap of faith taking what was a hobby into full time forging.
This now allows my creative side to go from idea’s in my head to actual decorative pieces that now take pride of place in people’s homes.
Thank you and enjoy.
