I have just completed a 2 day course with Gary after really enjoying 2 days wood turning with him last year. I am even more hooked on wood turning now and I'm determined to get my own lathe. Gary was extremely helpful, patient and allowed me to complete the projects that I wanted to do. Gary is an excellent tutor and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to try out a new craft.

I have just been on the 2 day course with Gary and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Gary is extremely patient and knowledgeable and I was really pleased with what I was able to create in such a short period of time which is testament to his teaching skills. After a week at work it was a most relaxing and enjoyable weekend and a great introduction to turning. This was a birthday gift from my wife and I will always remember it.

I have recently undertaken a two day beginners course with Gary and came away firmly believing that I had achieved something. One on one was a excellent way to start with Gary working on his lathe to demonstrate the use of the chisels and positioning on the lathe itself, working on my own alongside him. He watches you carefully to ensure lessons have been learned and doesn't interfere except if asked or when positioning needs to be corrected. It was a wonderful experience and a joy to work with a true professional and the finished products were richly admired by the family If you are a true beginner or one that needs to develop further the skills leaned in earlier years Gary is your man.
I was most impressed with his quiet dedicated manner and the way in which he made the whole experience fun. I'm looking for the family to give me a lathe for Christmas so that I can quickly put the training into practice.

I did this 2-day course in May 2015. The reason it has taken me over 3 months to post a review is because the training Gary gave me has encouraged me to dive in, buy a lathe and some tools and get woodturning myself!
Gary is a good teacher, explaining the tools and the techniques of turning. I found the course to be well-paced and the projects worked on a good introduction. The workshop is small and well equipped and there are a variety of woods to try turning with.
Since I got my own equipment (based on a list of supplied during the course), Gary has continued to offer support by answering some of my beginners questions.
