Colin is an awe-inspiring woodturner and also an excellent teacher who takes care to ensure his students actually learn and make progress.

Another enjoyable course with Jane and my day's work was framed and hanging on the wall by bedtime. Good food as always and plenty essential cups of tea.

Brilliant day! Had this day bought as a birthday gift and it was a gift that will last with me forever. Such an experience to try my hands at such a skilled trade.

Just finished a 2 day course with Colin. I started as a self taught beginner with bad habits and a complete lack of correct technique. I can honestly say I have had a brilliant 2 days being put right. He has a great relaxed manner of teaching and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I also came away with some nice projects....
