I was not disappointed in any way Nigel is an excellent teacher, calm and patient. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his craft is inspiring. I was delighted to return home with several pieces...

Blacksmithing taster day courses in Yorkshire and the North East
A heartfelt thank you for a truly fulfilling day. As a complete novice what a rare privilege it was to be in the company of a master craftsman in his own workshop, not some classroom or museum, using the same tools as had been creating the work around us. I was half expecting to come away shamed into the realisation...

Glass fusing introductory workshop with Laura Hart of Hart Glass
Working with Laura was an excellent experience. I had only basic knowledge of working with glass before my time with her, and through her patient guidance learn a great deal in just a short space of time. Her workshop is inspiring and her many projects on the go decorate the space wonderfully, with hidden gems of glass-work in every corner....

Pembrokeshire Maddie Janes Mosaic
I loved the afternoon I spent at Maddie's recently. I went with a group of friends and we all said how much fun we had. Some of us are going back complete with tables to cover in mosaic. I'd thoroughly recommend Maddie's courses, whether it's on your own, as a couple or as part of a group.

Hi George, Just wanted to say thank you so much for the tuition session that I had with you yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and was over the moon with the bowl that I made with your help! Both yourself and your lovely wife made me feel so welcome and it felt like I had known you...

Basic blacksmiths courses
Despite the pain that still exists in my hands (2 days later!), I could not have wished for a more fun and exhilarating experience! Ross is an incredible host, charismatic, helpful and always willing to regale you with anecdotes as the piece of metal you're working on heats up. He was a fantastic teacher, giving great guidance and praise where...

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days
Just attended the 2 day Introduction To Green Woodworking Course (March 2015) and it was brilliant. I've never done anything like this before and I couldn't believe what I achieved in the two days. Peter Lanyon enthuses you with his own passion for green woodworking and his teaching style is hands on with lots of support and coaching. I made...
