Very knowledgeable teacher, all valuable. Actually handling the bees was great, but the theory equally useful and interesting.
Loved the whole experience, food was excellent too.
Knowledgeable and informative presenter, relaxed style, excellent lunch.
Lovely tutor, nice size group, equipment ready for us.
Learning a new skill, well organised tutor, clear instructions
The best part was learning the building skills and helping to make a finished oven - the pizza lunch was pretty fantastic too.
Just a line to say what a great day I had on the blacksmith course last Sunday with Fraser, who made the day for me by being patient & informative.
I really had a lovely day trying stuff. The company, the format of the course, Ann's attitude and humour were all great.
The small group tuition was great. Ann was very friendly and it was definitely worth travelling from Manchester for this course.
The best part of the day:
Practicing first with willow then apple wood. Also the free knowledge given by the tutor.
The "Having a go" was great, but the tutor was brilliant in explaining all the techniques
Great tutor wonderful recipes, and lovely produce to take home.
The whole course was most enjoyable.
Used several tools I haven't used before and learnt a lot about the techniques involved in a pleasant atmosphere with a likeminded group. Very enjoyable.
Having everything prepared and ready to work on. Attention to detail and expert help readily given. The patience of the tutor.
I have loved everything from collecting the bits and pieces to seeing the wonderful results. Also love being with like minded people - great pea and potato soup.
The background information (history etc) was very interesting
very hands on and lots of opportunity practice handling of poultry. Lots of very useful information
The best part was the practical aspects e.g. the correct way to hold a chicken and mite identification and diease/health
The best part was getting to do every step yourself and having something to take home at the end. Frazer was an excellent tutor, easy to talk to and gave good guidence.
