I wanted to start 2020 learning new skills and spoon carving had been on my bucket list for a while so when I saw the course I signed up and what a course it was! Jack is an excellent teacher and explained in detail each step of the way to producing my final spoon with all my fingers intact! It was such a great day and a lot of fun and I can’t wait to sign up for the improvers course soon. Would recommend his course to anyone looking for a well priced fun day.
Jack has something for everyone. I had a little experience carving spoons and my wife had none but we both learned a lot throughout the day. The course felt relaxed and we both felt like we got all the instruction we needed.
Response from Fazey Woodcraft:Thanks Ben! Get yourself on 'The Next Level' spoon carving workshop.... 👍👍
Jake was very clear, and explained things well, before we started. He watched us and helped us when we needed, and he was encouraging. I had never done anything like this before, and so was worried I'd get it all wrong, but learning the right way to do things was valuable.
I'm not sure how many spoons a person needs though, so I'm hoping to learn to carve other things once I get better at spoons.
Response from Fazey Woodcraft:Thanks for the review Wendy.. and for the record you can never have enough spoons!
The 1 day course from Fazey Woodcraft was brilliant!
Jack’s knowledge of wood and carving is huge and his approach to the course was perfect. Letting us learn our own mistakes but also helping at the right times so we didn’t ruin what we were making.
This workshop was a great thing to do. Carving is very therapeutic!
I would highly recommend this to anyone, even if they don’t consider themselves to be a practical person.
Response from Fazey Woodcraft:Thanks Joel. 👍
I loved this course and Jack is a brilliant teacher. By the end of the day I came away with one spoon and another in the making and a desire to buy the tools and get cracking on some more. The beginnings of a great hobby for life! He was thorough in teaching us how to handle the tools safely and guided us through each stage. No one was left behind and Jack was available for help at any moment with a watchful eye at all times yet allowing us to feel our own way at the same time.
Many thanks 🙏🏻 Jack for a wonderful creative day.
Response from Fazey Woodcraft:Thanks Jane! Glad you enjoyed it so much and hope to see you again on another one!
