Want to review this course?

I loved this course. I had no prior experience and when I arrived and saw what we were going to make I thought i'd never reach that standard in two days! Yet I came home with a beautiful handmade stool that everyone admired! The tutor was enthusiastic and very informative and guided us at a good pace through the two days. We all sat in the courtyard for lunch and got to know each other, a lovely sociable atmosphere. Cant recommend this course enough!

I did a stool making course at the East London School of Furniture. It was fantastic! A great way to spend two days, and I got to take home my beautiful handmade ash stool! The atmosphere was really relaxed, and I met some lovely people. I was a complete beginner, and nothing was too challenging. There were others who had some experience, and we all got a lot out of it, so well designed and suitable for all levels. I cant recommend enough!
