Having zero woodworking skills I amazed myself with what I achieved after only five days - all credit to John for his excellent teaching. The small class gives everyone lots of one to one time with John. I arrived with a piece of firewood and went home with a beautifully restored 19th century chair. Everything was spot on!

I really liked the in depth knowledge the course gave me and the confidence through the practical work to carry out projects of my own. Additionally the relaxed attitude that carried throughout the week.

The two felting courses I have done with Toni were great fun and very well taught and informative. I came away with useful bags that are also pretty, and with a great sense of achievement!

This was an extremely informative and enjoyable day. I’d had an interest in wood turning for a while but never actually done it before.

I had a fantastic time on the candle making course. Angharad was so welcoming and friendly as were the dogs.
