I thoroughly enjoyed my day on Gerry's course. The set up of the workshop is excellent and it is great to be introduced to and then be able to use good quality tools under the watchful eye of an great craftsman. Gerry is supportive and cheerful - as well as having obvious expertise. It is very encouraging to leave at the end of the day with a piece you have made yourself. I will be going back for more !
This was a one day introductory course. The day was superb in every respect. The quality of instruction, the opportunities to try the techniques and the fact that an artefact (a carved shell) was the outcome of the day made for an excellent introduction. I can recommend such a course and the quality of Gerald Adams' coaching without a single reservation. In addition, the refreshments and lunch made for a great atmosphere.
