My wife and I attended Jake and Gaz’s box-making class and it was BRILLIANT!

The way the class was taught, breaking the whole process down in to small manageable steps made the idea of box making, simple and not intimidating.

The patience Jake and Gaz showed us, even staying late to let us sand and complete our boxes, couldn’t have been better.

Two lovely guys and great teachers.

Thanks guys, Matt & Jolene

I had a most enjoyable time at the box making course on Saturday. Jake is an excellent teacher, and along with his glamorous assistant Gareth we were very well instructed and looked after throughout the day with the right amount of tuition and practical advice. I am very proud of my achievement and now introduced to woodworking I'd like to do some more.

What an excellent workshop! It was fun, informative, Gaz and Jake explained everything in such a good way and were happy to answer every question and share their knowledge. I learnt a lot and made a box I’m very proud of! Would recommend this workshop 100%.

This is an amazing course. I learnt many skills and brought home an exquisite object. Thanks to Jake’s patience with teaching, guidance and attention to detail, I was able to make a professional-looking box despite being an absolute beginner with this craft. Being taught by an expert maker of fine furniture was very inspiring.
