Introduction to Spoon Carving
Excellent course, pitched at the right level for a complete novice like me, but flexible enough to cater for more experienced woodworkers like my husband. It was immensely satisfying to create a spoon by hand after axing out a section of a log. Chris has great enthusiasm for his craft, and is very knowledgeable. He shares his passion freely and...

Build a Bowl Lathe & Learn to Turn
What a hoot!!! Four days in Adrians world renowned and envied workshop with the man himself. How can you beat that? By making an utterly fantastic bowl lathe to take home. Then what? You get to make a bowl on it under Adrian’s expert tuition. Excellent tuition, hospitality, cake and craic. Fantastic course. Thank you so much

J Kettle Jewellery - Learn to make silver jewellery onboard The Silver Jewellery Boat.
I booked with Jonathan as a refresher course, having done some silversmithing some years ago and lost confidence through lack of practice. I couldn't have wished for a better day! He was patient, good humoured, and encouraging, helping me punch out silver shapes, texture and shape them and solder them into earrings. Altogether, the day was so relaxed and inspiring,...

Wood Turning Tuition, New Forest, Hampshire (1 Day)
I have always wanted to do more woodwork, and recently acquired my own lathe. Having acquired one I realised the thought of pointing a very sharp instrument at a spinning piece of wood was very daunting.

The Eating Spoon with JoJo Wood
This was a thorough and well paced course led by someone who knows so much intuitively as well as technically about wood and spoon carving. I left feeling I had been given grounded and tested techniques which if I can adopt will mean my spoon making will produce successful spoons…looking good and functioning for purpose. I am hoping it means...

Beginners sewing and quilting at Spools and Scissors Suffolk
From the moment I arrived at Tracey’s gorgeous cottage I had a most enjoyable day. Tracey was a great teacher who was very calm and patient with me being a beginner and gave me lots of great advice. I still can’t quite believe I made such a beautiful tote bag. A lovely day not forgetting the yummy homemade banana cake.

It will also make it all the more memorable for the person you give it to, adding that personal touch. Bridget was welcoming and friendly and made...

Introduction to Leatherwork with Nigel Armitage
Having just started leatherwork, I found and viewed most if not all of Nigel Armitage's YouTube videos, I then subscribed to his Vimeo channel. You would think that this would be enough to start your own projects, well it is to an extent, but I decided to contact Nigel and book a 1-day course with him. Nigel is a good...

Make a Leather Journal/Artist's Sketchbook
Absorbing and rewarding day! Lynne made us very welcome and the small group size meant that we had plenty of individual attention and support. The structure of the day was spot-on, with clear step-by-step demonstrations and illustrated hand-outs so we could go on to make more journals at home if we wished. Everyone had their own set of tools so...
