Recent comments from just a few of our “trainees” :

  • “I bought this as an 80th birthday present for my father, we had a great day, relaxed and enjoyable. We came away with a couple of spoons each and a spatula and an appreciation of the skills involved. Roy was great teacher and we enjoyed the wide ranging discussions over lunch. Also the setting is wonderful and added to the relaxed atmosphere, carving wood in a clearing in a woods, what more can you want!. Thanks to all involved.” (September 2019)
  • It was one of the best course I have been on. Roy was very knowledgeable when asked a vast array of questions. The wood supplied was fantastic and we managed to make a number of boxes that day. I have since gone on to make a few shakers boxes but nothing compares to the atmosphere provided by the team. Thank you for a great day” (August 2019)
  • Great course and teaching from Isis. I can’t believe the beautiful chairs my daughter and I came home with!
    Thanks so much” (June 2019)
