Amazing time spoon carving and staying at the tiny homes! Paul was a fab teacher, very patient and helped us all to come away with fantastic and beautiful spoons (much better than we thought we could have done at the beginning of the day!)
Highly recommend to both newcomers to carving/whittling and also those with experience as he catered for all!
The tiny homes themselves are excellent, eco living but with all the home comforts and Helen and Frazer make the stay wonderful!
