Want to review this course?

This was an excellent course - I'd highly recommend it. I'd never done any woodworking before and I learnt a lot in a short space of time and had fun doing it! Jenny's exactly the teacher you'd want - highly skilled, very clear in her instructions, patient and helpful. I'll certainly be signing up for more courses in the future.


I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn new skills about woodworking.
I had fun while learning and Jenny has been a lovely tutor, always ready to answer your questions and very clear in teaching you new skills about wood and various tools.


Brilliant course. Jenny is a great teacher who was very helpful and patient with me - a complete novice! The course allows you to work at your own pace, while still being guided every step of the way. Being instructed how to correctly use basic tools such as saw, chisel, plane is fantastic and just what I needed to know. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be signing up to some more courses soon.


very enjoyable course, i learnt or revisited old skills, good facilities and relaxing atmosphere, cycling /walking to site is best transport methhod...due to parking zones hugh bond


I really enjoyed the course. We gained confidence using woodworking tools such as chisel, block plain, saw and many more. I liked working on a work bench, it makes a difference.
Jenny, the tutor, is very patient and happy to guide your every step in the workshop.
