Nigel reviewed: Woodturning tuition in Wiltshire

"What a fantastic day! It’s been a couple of days since my session with Andy and I’m really pleased with how much I learnt. Andy is charming, entertaining and a font of knowledge which he’s happy to share. Great value. If you're thinking about taking up wood turning - you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to start. "

" Thanks for your kind remarks Nigel ! Hope to see you again "

Hester reviewed: Letter carving in wood

"We had a brilliant day with Andy and Mary yesterday, they were both very welcoming. Andy showed us the techniques both of letter carving and sharpening the chisels. We tried to carve some simple letters and discovered it was extremely difficult! As this was a new skill for us, progress was slow, but Andy was very patient and explained everything well. We would like to thank both Andy and Mary for ensuring we had such a good day, trying out something completely different."

" Thanks for your review ! I’m glad you both had a lovely time Andy Mary Angus c"

Pete Kelson reviewed: Woodturning

"Simply perfect. Two days of woodturning bliss. Andy is the best. I am a complete woodturning virgin. Haven't even got a lathe (yet). Andy was so patient. Constructed the 2 days in such a way that I followed it all. Couldn't get enough of it. Andy made the art of woodturning comprehensible to me. And tea and lunch with Mary and Angus was a fantastic bonus too. This course was worth every penny. Life enhancing. Thanks Andy, I'm a happy man. "

Andys woodworking responded:

" Thanks for that lovely feedback Pete , the last two days have been great Looking forward to seeing you again Andy Mary Angus x"
