Brilliant. Could not have enjoyed it more. Ended up with a stool that was much better than I expected and that was due to the great (and patient) teaching by Danny and his team. There were nine of us on the course ranging in age from teenagers to over 60's. Everybody was happy to help each other out. Eating lunch and drinking tea around the fire was very pleasant, weather a bit cold and a bit wet but it didn't matter at all. I would thoroughly recommend this course. I am planning to go on one of the longer chair making course in the future.
