This was a really enjoyable way to spend a weekend. The tasks are well-judged to be doable in the time, but still somewhat challenging, so you have a sense of achievement at the end, and well-structured so that by the time you get to the trickier bits, you have developed some skill with the tools.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you very much for the review Liz, glad you enjoyed it.

Really enjoyed this course, my first of maybe many. Geraint is an excellent teacher and showed us both in explanation and hands on how to carve wood using an amazing array of chisels. Would recommend anyone who wants to have a go at wood carving to go on this course. 10/10 for me

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you for the positive review. We get a lot of pleasure out of seeing people progress and produce some beautiful work. It was lovely to meet you on the weekend.
