What a brilliant course I would never believe I could learn so much in one day and all in such a beautiful location. Peter & Jacqui were perfect hosts and their enthusiasm was infectious, the whole day was a pleasure. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone.

An truly excellent course which I thoroughly enjoyed. Pete certainly knows his stuff and, while he taught in an informal manner, his knowledge of green woodworking was exemplary. All of the tools were in very good condition and the cutting edges were impressively sharp. Copious tea and biscuits were conjured up at regular intervals. It was quite a hard day's work, but very rewarding and I ended up with a most impressive rake to take home.
I would thoroughly recommend this course and fully intend to do another course with Pete and Jackie in the future.

An excellent day run by a knowledgeable and patient team. Lots of different tools to use and skills to learn but Pete explained each step and method clearly and was always on hand to assist without taking over. Cups of tea from the kettle over the fire kept everything running smoothly and the participants were delighted with their completed rakes at the end of the day. Thank you!
