Want to review this course?

The course was excellent and very enjoyable. Bev, and husband Nigel, were so welcoming and friendly. Everything was well explained and broken down into a series of simple steps, resulting in perfect Tuffets for everyone. A lovely working environment, lots of tea and coffee throughout the day, with lovely home cooked lunches both days, and the opportunity to work with like minded people. What could be better? I can highly recommended the course and hope to do another before too long. Thank you Bev and Nigel.
