Nic Bassinder reviewed: Mastering Pen Making.

"We had a brilliant day making pens with Derek, he is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We learned a huge amount, had a very enjoyable day and came home with pens to die for. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Derek!"

Assynt Pens responded:

" Great fun with great students, and Rosie says hi! Thank you Nic&Paul. Glad you enjoyed the day. You rocked it!"

Scott Allan reviewed: Pen Making Course (1/2 day)

"Purchased this course for my daughter (young adult) after visiting Fulbeck Craft Centre earlier in the year. She had a great time and was really pleased with the results of her work and the course. Derek was a great teacher as I watched throughout, explaining everything about what they were doing and why, alternatives that could be used even if they weren't being used that day and had a lovely manner about him. She'd already like to return in the future for a full day course. Recommended all round. "

Assynt Pens responded:

" Thank you for the kind review. Verity was a great student. Capable and confident. She made my job easy."

Roger Sims reviewed: Mastering Pen Making.

"I had a fantastic day learning to turn pens with Derek. Every process was explained and demonstrated before being let loose on the lathe! With Derek’s expert tuition I left with 2 pens and now feel very confident to practice making more at home!"

Assynt Pens responded:

" Your pens were excellent, especially the Spanish Olive fountain pen. Your patience and workmanship certainly paid off. Well done Roger, hope to see you again! Safe travels home."
