Robin Wenham reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"The courses are such fun! You learn practical woodworking from a practising woodworker and take away finished project at the end of the course - Richard inspires you and gives you the confidence to complete the work that you want to complete and is quite happy to continue after completion of the course - he's always happy to reply to e-mails. The courses are structured well, mixing practical with informative lunchtime lectures. For me it was the stepping stone to a new pastime."

Jacqueline Duffield reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"This course is fantastic and has changed my life! I have been searching for a long time for the 'thing I want to do next', and this is it. Richard and Mark have so much knowledge and patience and are open to your ideas no matter how crazy - "you really want to leave the bark on that chest of drawers?!" I would recommend this course to anyone, young or old, male or female, as a hobby or as a stepping stone to a future career. It is great value for money considering the rewards, and you get to take home your new prized piece of furniture to enjoy for a long time to come."

Mary Munro reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"I have never had lessons before in the use of a lathe, band saw etc and was very pleased to discover that with the patient guidance of Richard I too could successfully complete a wonderful little table for all to see and admire. I loved using their new sander that had a tilting table as part of it. The course is also very informative in practical tips for a workshop set up, sharpening tools, helpful gadgets, screws, drills and much more. Go for it!!!"

Linda Keen reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"I attended the course without prior knowledge or experience of woodwork. I was amazed I learned so much, so quickly. Richard and Mark are true craftsmen and it was a priviledge to be in their company. Their skills, knowledge and expertise was imparted with enthusiasm and their positive encouragement was palpable alowing each individual to attain a high level of competence. Set in beautiful countryside in superbly equiped workshops this is a great course and a wonderful experience. Without doubt I recommend this course to anyone who loves to learn and at the same time thoroughly enjoy themselves."

Kerry Kingston reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"Richard has worked really hard to structure this course brilliantly - it's not just a good woodworker showing you what he does. He mixes a series of lessons with hands-on practical work at a pace that keeps both your brain and hands engaged in a thoroughly absorbing week. And its a lovely relaxing environment too, so it does feel more like a holiday than a course. The real test is that I now have a workshop in my garage and I've made a chest of drawers, a garden table and I'm even contemplating building my own kitchen units!"

Frank Price reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"The courses run by Richard are excellent. He combines knowledge and experience with an infectious enthusiasm that makes the week flash by. Mark works together with Richard and between them they have all the skills you can imagine! On both courses I learned so much about wood and got to practise a whole range of skills and techniques. The courses taught me a tremendous amount and gave me confidence to adapt what I learned to other projects in my own workshop. If you are a beginner or someone with a good set of skills already you will learn a great deal from Richard and Mark. Thoroughly recommended!"

Simon Appleby reviewed: Five day woodwork course - wood

"Both Richard and Mark clearly love what they do and their enthusiasm is infectious. I have attended two courses at The Wood Workshop and both have been excellent learning experiences. Both the courses have had their core content to follow yet Richard is happy to work around this to address, wherever possible, any personal objectives or specific areas of learning you may want to cover. I enjoyed and benefited from my time on these courses and have no hesitation in recommending them."

Kate reviewed: Felting, An Introduction - Make a Fabulous Felt Wall-hanging

"I loved every moment of this course, from picking out my merino wool in a selection of beautiful blues and turquoises, to watching Heather explain carefully how the process works and making a great little pair of blue bootees for my nephew, with pon pons to match! I have signed up for the next one already!"
