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!!!"

Matthew Bentley reviewed: Make a Windsor-style stool

"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."

Robin Loveland reviewed: Make a Welsh stick chair

"What a fabulous week. Hidden away in our forest glade in a beautiful corner of very rural Wales, I couldn’t believe that the pile of freshly felled timber could be split , axed, shaved and bent into the beautiful traditional chair that I proudly took home a week later. The company was excellent, a great feeling of camaraderie and mutual support supervised at all time by the highly skilled, knowledgeable and ever patient Ben. The work room under canvas, with the ever present fire burning (there are a lot of off cuts!), learning how to, and then using hand tools, was a wonderful and peaceful, but highly industrious enclave. A great week with a great tutor! (and a lovely chair!!) Highly recommended! "
