Conor reviewed: Make a Welsh stick chair

"This course is absolutely fantastic and I can't recommend it highly enough. Ben is not only a brilliant woodworker but also an excellent teacher, he manages to make sure you’re always up to speed without interfering too much or doing the work for you. As a beginner I learned a huge number of valuable techniques and picked up lots of tips, others on the course were more experienced but still gained a lot. In addition to this the workshop is set in a beautiful woodland and Ben also does a fantastic range of soups for lunch. "

Patrick Laurie reviewed: Make a Welsh stick chair

"A fantastic course, and a really excellent way to spend a week. Ben was always on hand with advice and support, and I learned an enormous amount as the days went by. The hard work ultimately paid off and I'm really delighted with the chair I made - I can't recommend this course highly enough."

Paul O reviewed: Make a Welsh stick chair

"I have benefited from Ben’s expert and patient tuition three times now, and our home is dignified by two elegant Welsh stick chairs and one functional Windsor stool as a result. The seven day course on the Welsh borders is simply fantastic….idyllic work environment, very good wood, very good tools and great company…and you end up with furniture far in advance of anything to be found on Tottenham Court Road. Sign up now!!!"

"Had a brilliant time making the stool. Very cathartic and loved the end result. Looking to book my next course once I convince my wife."
