This was pitched at just the right level, assistance when needed but also able to get on without interruption in between. Venue was lovely too!

I’ve just come back from the woodworking course. It was a great experience and I was very happy with what I produced. The tutor was very knowledgeable and helpful and I look forward to attempting a few of my own pieces. The location was also great, thanks very much.

I was actually on the wood carving course; we worked along side the stone carvers. It was a superb experience and well worth the tuition fee. We learnt such a lot and created some fantastic pieces. Thank you so much!

This course was a Christmas present for a friend who has always wanted to work with stone. He absolutely loved the 2 day course that was in a beautiful setting. Luckily the weather was good so he could work outside. He did say it was hard work but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I benefitted from his hard work and was given the beautiful piece of art.

A well run course with expert tutor. Miranda was really supportive and encouraging and wanted everyone to get the best out of their respective sculptures. The bonus was lovely weather and working outside in a lovely setting.

Very good two day course; value for money. Learnt a great deal and feel confident to continue wood carving. Garaint, our instructor, was very helpful and provided excellent direction on the use of the different tools to create a carving. It is held in the open air so there's a need to be prepared for the weather; cold wind or sun. It would be helpful if a fact sheet could be provided for those wishing to take up carving. 10/10. Would recommend anyone give this a go.

I had the best time and would love to continue on a regular basis so will be booking again.
If you're never done clay modeling before you will be learning in a tranquil environment and Miranda is a calm and intuitive tutor. I found this course excellent for all levels due to the tutorial guidance. Thoroughly enjoyed!

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you, so glad you enjoyed it.

Green Man clay sculpture course

Pauline - - #38307

Went to the green man class. Everything is provided. Very clear instructions. Inspirational day. Loved the way we all achieved our own individual results. Very clear instructions and support. Felt in good hands. You may need an apron and warm clothing. Tea and coffee available but bring your own lunch. You will come away feeling a great sense of achievement.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thanks for the review Pauline, we certainly did have a variety of individual green men!

I didn't have any experience of carving and received a place on this course as a gift. I really enjoyed the course, and the instructor was very good. My husband was very impressed by my carving of a Hare.

Glad you enjoyed it Julie, thank you for the review.

This was an excellent two day course with a very experienced and patient tutor - I learned a lot and came away with a finished piece that came out pretty well!

Definitely recommended! Bring a hat/sunscreen if the weather's good, working outside is lovely but even in March was a bit hot.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you for the review David, glad you enjoyed it.

Fab day, helped further by the weather so that we could be outside in the sunshine under gazebos. Miranda came round with helpful hints and I think we all produced something to be proud of. I had time to do another small sculpture as well. I do hope that they survive the firing process, I was so pleased with them!

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

So glad you enjoyed the day Sian, thanks for the review. Miranda

Cathy B - - #37815

As a total beginner I found Geraint was very patient, and gave very clear guidance about how to approach what we were doing, one step at a time. We had a choice of projects, but it was clear that he had selected ideas that would be achievable over the two days so we all came away with a finished item. It was very enjoyable.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Lovely to meet you Cathy and I am really pleased you enjoyed the course.

I am not at all arty or crafty so I both looked forward to and dreaded the course.
Geraint is a fabulous teacher and is determined to get you to leave with your own completed work, having learnt about wood, tools, and carving techniques. The atmosphere in the room was superbe with a sense of hard work and accomplishment.
A very enjoyable and memorable 2 days! Thank you.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you for your review Aline, glad you enjoyed it.

This was a really enjoyable way to spend a weekend. The tasks are well-judged to be doable in the time, but still somewhat challenging, so you have a sense of achievement at the end, and well-structured so that by the time you get to the trickier bits, you have developed some skill with the tools.

Response from Amerton Arts Studio:

Thank you very much for the review Liz, glad you enjoyed it.
