We attended a full day turning course at the Mulberry Tree Woodturnery as part of our stay on the Isle of Wight. It was superb with Andy’s way of teaching being both relaxed and easy to understand. We produced bowls and a platter and were delighted with what we made.
My husband has since said that it was his favourite day of the holiday.

Absolutely amazing day ^_^ Suitable for any age or ability, very interesting day, would do it again and again :-) Feel a sense of pride when you finish the day with 2 items that you have made yourself with the guidance and patience from Andy!

My favourite birthday present. No phone or iPad involved. Came back relaxed and amazed at what andy had got me to achieve, a bowl and plate that still have pride of place at home!

Brilliant. Total novice but Andy explained everything carefully and was very patient. I have a beautiful wooden bowl that my family cannot believe I made myself.

I love doing all sorts of crafts, so decided to try my hand at wood turning whilst holidaying on the Isle of Wight. Andy is a fab teacher, so calm, relaxed & knowledgable. It's lovely to have a unique reminder to take home too. I highly recommend giving it a try.

My course was a birthday gift from my son. A one day course which was led by the very knowledgeable and patient Andy Fortune at The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery at Arreton Barns on the Isle of Wight. An experience I would recommend to all ages, it was so rewarding plus you leave with at least one unique turned bowl. Now I have the bugand make small turned pieces at home. Excellent value, something you have to experience!

I had never tried woodturning before I met Andy at The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery. He explained to me brilliantly from start to finish. he is very patient and a great teacher, and very obviously knows what he is talking about. he made me feel very at ease and I made a lovely bowl that I will treasure.

Having received a days wood turning at the mulberry tree wood tunery as a gift I was really looking forward to trying something different. Under the expert tuition of Andy I turned my very first bowl, his knowledge of the craft is exceptional and I would highly recommend one of his courses
