A very enjoyable day spent with a very talented tutor Chris, I spent far too long chatting and not enough time carving my spoon, but hey isn’t that what ‘whittling a stick’ all about?

A very good, informative and professional course balanced by friendly and enthusiastic tuition. Impressed by the scope of work carried out here alongside these courses, obviously this work is sought after and I have seen many examples in the area and in outlets. We produced useful items to take home. Plenty of tea/coffee/ refreshments during the day.

Wow! What an amazing day. After a welcoming cuppa and fantastic cake, a quick H&S briefing and down to business. The step by step instruction from Adrian is paced just right for all, and a helping hand if you need it. On top of all that the catering is delicious, homemade and locally sourced. I can't wait to go again!

Brilliant day. Adrian is an excellent teacher the course is fun well paced and really enjoyable. I was amazed at how quick you start making your own items. The food and refreshments provided were delicous. I would go on the day again just for the sheer fun of it.
