Basic blacksmiths courses
I booked the course for me and my dad and we had a fantastic day with Ross and Sarah. We haven't stopped talking about since we did it and we can't recommend it enough for anyone who wants a fun day learning something new. Ross was fun and a very good teacher we both left with great items, aching arms...

Basic blacksmiths courses
What an excellent day we had! Despite the horrendous journey round the M25, (there and back home again), we had the most fantastic day! The original plan was for 15 year old Bruno to do the course on his own while I sat in the garden with a cup of tea, but I'm so glad that I joined in too...

Wood carving and Love Spoons
I have enjoyed wood carving with Sharon for many years And regard her more of a friend than a tutor. Sharon has Patience with everyone, never reprimanding you if your work is not quite right but cleverly adjusting your work so that it looks good. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons as it's my time and look forward to it. Thank...

My son, Will (14), had the most wonderful experience working with Nigel over the last 2 days. He has learnt so much and is very pleased with what he has made (I will send photos).

A fabulous introduction to fused glass - one day course
We had a great day on this course. It was run in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Siobhan is a riot and very knowledgeable and ready to explain and guide throughout the day. The time flew by. Highly recommended.

Wood turning courses
I would just like to say how much I enjoyed my day’s woodturning with George. Particularly rewarding was the opportunity to have a go at some decorative work (ebonizing and grain filling with gold) which felt quite artistic! George is relaxed and patient and I found his overall teaching style to be very encouraging. I now feel inspired to take...

Wood carving and Love Spoons
The course that Sharon ran at Higham Hall in Cumbria was wonderful. The atmosphere is always so friendly and we have lots of laughs as well as being taught the very complicated art of relief wood carving. I am looking forward to the next time Sharon is in Cumbria.

One day introductory course to candle making
I had a gorgeous few hours making candles and learning all about how to make them in the future. As well as beautiful candles, you also come away with a comprehensive guide which summarises everything you have been taught. Sakeena is a great tutor - passionate about candle making - and really keen to share her ideas and skills to...
