Want to review this course?

An excellent course- I received fantastic tuition that has provided me with many skills for future use. Alan is a great teacher and,believe me, he can help the most ‘cack-handed’ of us produce a useable, aesthetically pleasing footstool. The course is great fun and I met a great group of people.

I would highly recommend this course, it really is fantastic value for money- and Wendy, the soups for lunch were fab.

Thank you

I never knew that making a footstool would be so much fun. I attended the last one that was run by The Dorset Chairman. Alan the Tutor is a true craftsman and fantastic teacher. He guided all 8 of us through everything, absolutely chuffed with my stool.
