Want to review this course?

Well appointed and safely organised workshop, good car parking and great little cafe.
Martin is a very good tutor, deceptively relaxed as we actually worked hard!
Would love to sign up again. Any chance of bowls/shaped (slumped) panels day? Glass casting?
Thank you Martin.
