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!
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
