Tom and James were brilliant instructors, they've taught me a lot, I'll never see a bow in the same light again. The time flew by, I started with a laminated stave and two days later I'm loosing with a bow I've made. I'll be spreading your name far and wide lads, still can't stop grinning.

Absolutely amazing weekend! Started with a chunk of wood and ended up shooting my own hand made long bow. Tom and James are fantastic tutors, patient and explained everything in such a way I knew exactly what I was doing. They have a huge amount of knowledge and I learnt so much more than just how to make a bow!...

This was a fantastic day. Instruction was very clear with visual help from pieces around the gallery to demonstrate technique and effects. It was absolute immersion in being creative for the day. I would dearly love to go and do another course it was so enjoyable.

I went to my first course with Richard on a whim, almost by chance, almost a year ago. And it has changed my life. I've instantly become addicted to glass fusing. One day in his workshop was enough to do that. He is the perfect teacher. I was totally absorbed from the moment I entered the inspirational treasure cove that...

Attended this day course and highly enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested to find out if green woodworking is "for them". Simon was very helpful, encouraging and patient which made me feel that much more comfortable doing each task. He has a great manner for correcting mistakes so don't worry about getting something wrong! Again,...

What an enlivening experience. Started with Maddie as a complete beginner but under Maddies calm and enabling teaching style soon began to learn the ropes, resulting in a satisfying finished piece. All materials were supplied in a fabulous workshop full of stimulating goodies. Thank you wonderful
