Want to review this course?

I just finished a five weeks course with Nigel and he opened up a new and wonderful world of wood carving for me. He is a real inspiration and full of creative ideas. He is very helpful and gives very constructive guidance and advice. There is a special atmosphere in the workshop with music and stimulating conversation.
Thank you Nigel.
