Recently completed a five week course-wish it had been ten times longer! The amount of knowledge/advice/guidance Nigel gently imparts in truly wonderful surroundings made for a fun and very enjoyable course. Would highly recommend for both beginner and experienced carver

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.
