Sebastian reviewed: Furniture making course: Fundamentals of Furniture Making Part 1 (beginner) - 2 day course in Surrey

"I was very fortunate to spend time learning from Aidan in his Farnham workshop in March 2015. Aidan is an enthusiastic and generous teacher and I left the course with confidence and motivation to apply the hand and machine skills I learned and practised to the projects I already have under way. Aidan clearly enjoys sharing his expertise and experience with students and has none of the preciousness often noticeable with professional designer/makers. His is down-to-earth, excellent training from a world-class furniture maker (google his exquisite cherry and walnut, crocus-inspired coronation table on display in Buckingham Palace!) If I have the chance to do more woodworking training in the future, I will not consider training anywhere else. Thank you, Aidan!"

"I attended Fundamentals of Furniture Making, Part 1. The two day course was very informative and practical. Aidan is a great tutor who has vast carpentry knowledge and made the course very fun. It has inspired me to continue my hobby further and I have already booked onto the second part of the course."

Sandra reviewed: Furniture making course: Fundamentals of Furniture Making Part 1 (beginner) - 2 day course in Surrey

"I attended the fundamentals part 1 course last year and I enjoyed it so much I came back to the workshop recently to achieve fundamentals part 2. I wouldn't have considered doing it anywhere else, Aidan is such an amazing teacher! Not only skilled and passionate but also very patient and attentive. Aidan adapts very well to the different levels of skills and speed from his students; whether you know little or a lot, you will never feel left out or set back. I have myself hardly any experience in wood working and chose to do the weekend courses which turned out to be quite intensive but so much worth it! The courses are thoughtfully designed and unveil a series of techniques and tools for you to progress and achieve levels of refinement you would have never thought you would be capable of! You will be going home with lots of tips and a fine piece of furniture you can be proud of!"

"It's hard work and I ended up sore and blistered.... But so worth it. Aiden was fantastic at getting across a real understanding of what you're trying to achieve and the theory behind it. I had little previous experience in woodworking but still think I gained a lot from this course. Would highly recommend! Plus I have a lovely handmade chopping board!"

Nigel Dunbar reviewed: Furniture making course: Fundamentals of Furniture Making Part 1 (beginner) - 2 day course in Surrey

"When Aidan told us what we were going to achieve using just a No 7 plane I was sceptical to say the least; not because I didn't believe it could be done but as a complete novice I didn't believe I could be taught to complete the piece in just two days. I have never been so happy to be proved wrong! Aidan is a true craftsman and with such a love of his craft that it's impossible not to be inspired. He's a fantastic teacher and the weekend is extremely well formed. I can't wait to join the next course."

"Excellent good fun and came out with a great picture frame. Some hard work is required and a lot of is crammed into a class. Since the course my tool box has grown heavily and I just wish I had a space to practice more at home. There are many things to learn on the course, many of which are tacit skills. Like seeing and experiencing different tools and workshop methods. There is a definite emphasis on skills to finish more precise quality work for cabinet making over other forms of carpentry."

Paul reviewed: Furniture making course: Fundamentals of Furniture Making Part 1 (beginner) - 2 day course in Surrey

"This was the first woodworking course I'd ever attended, so all I have to compare to are the innumerable work-related courses (both compulsory and voluntary) that I went to before I retired. The really good thing about this course is Aidan himself. He's knowledgeable, friendly, supportive, and really works hard to make sure each individual pupil on the course gets tuition that is tailored to the person's abilities. I'm looking to attend part 2 of the course, when I can fit it in to what looks like being a very busy year."
