Amazing course organised in the idyllic setting that is Kith Homestead. Steve's teaching was fun, friendly and easy to follow whilst learning a new skill, taking a log and transforming it into a wooden spoon, learning about the many techniques the achieve the end result.

The homemade lunch provided by Lorna, as well as the much enjoyed homemade pie were delicious and kept us warm and fuelled for the rest of the day.

This course would make for the perfect Christmas present as the experience is second to none. Highly recommend!
