Want to review this course?

I had absolutely no prior experience with the tools involved in this kind of carving nor of creating anything so large. I learnt lots and came away with a carving I absolutely treasure. Jason was always patient, with just the right mix of 'let me show you how' and 'let me help' to get me carving confidently.
I would definitely come back time and again if I could.
Just being in the studio amongst Jason's own works was enough to inspire !
