Gill Thackray reviewed: Introduction to woodworking in the grassington area

"Just completed a basic wood working course with Alec. We learnt how to handle tools and create joints to make our own items. Alec was brilliant at explaining and we learnt how to correct mistakes. Would highly recommend course. "

Lana Copleston reviewed: Introduction to woodworking in the grassington area

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course! Ollie is an experienced furniture designer and a great teacher explaining things very well and answering all my questions. It was fab getting back into woodcraft again and I felt like I got my confidence back with Ollie's support and encouraging nature! I learned how to make different joints using handsaws and chisels and was happy with my results. I would very much recommend this course! Many thanks, Lana"

Holly Mole reviewed: Introduction to woodworking in the grassington area

"I had a great time at this woodworking course and learnt loads. Oliver was a great teacher, and after covering all the basics (different types of wood, different tools etc) we then moved on to making various joints. By the end of the day I felt so much more confident with the tools and techniques. Would 100% recommend for anybody interested in woodwork! "
