Worth doing a whole day as you become more confident as the day goes on. Graham was great, there was no pressure and he offered advice when asked.

What an outstanding day! Relaxed and informal, yet inspirational and supportive - what an amazing teacher. Still can't believe we beginners produced such lovely work. Everyone should try this.

The four of us had a fabulous morning using our imagination and drawing with fire. What a great idea , to showcase what can be done. We gave this course as a present to my brother and sister in laws for Christmas .
Graham is really patient and provides plenty of pieces of wood and inspiration - as well as excellent biscuits and coffee to keep us all going !
