As a complete novice at woodworking this course was absolutely brilliant, Peters relaxed and supportive teaching style had me using both traditional and power tools (eek!) with confidence. The small side table I produced is absolutely beautiful. Peter really took the time to get to know everyone on the course and to really think about what our individual needs were....

I did an "Introduction To Green Woodworking" course with Peter at Growers Organic. It really was fantastic, as well as learning a whole range of skills, and spending the weekend with a great bunch of people, I made and finished a beautiful stool. Peter was a great teacher, allowing everyone to learn at their own pace, with humour, kindness and...

I've been to two of Peter's courses now and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. I've thoroughly enjoyed the process and the finished articles and much of this has been down to Peter's sensitivity and responsiveness, being willing to be flexible and adapt the courses to the sometimes challenging and awkward wishes of course participants like myself. He was always happy...

Brilliant course! Excellent tuition and company. I was so pleased with my beautiful stool that I gave it to my daughter for Christmas. She loves it. I went on the course with some friends and we had such a good weekend. Creative, productive and fun. Highly recommended.

What I particularly liked about the course is his eye for the design of the piece - he shares his thoughts but leaves you free to...

I attended one of Nigel's courses and was given a large amount of time actually forging coming away with useful ironwork and a thirst to do more. The accommodation is good with basic facilities to cook and a number of close hostelry's. I understand that new accommodation in showman vans are being constructed to support the new courses to help...

I attended a 1 day course in Blacksmithing with Nigel at Fransham Forge in September 2013. I would rate the training as first class; the tuition was adapted to my interest and level of skill with most of the instruction being hands on. I came away with some nice pieces which have been much admired by my friends and family!...

I have done two, and booked a third, course with Helen making fused glass bunting and then Christmas light catchers. She is patient and encouraging, and is good at letting you do things for yourself, but always willing to advise and help when asked. She has really inspirational examples to show, is generous with time and materials, and I'm already...
