Make a live-edge bench or table

Ben really encourages participants to get an authentic green woodworking experience regardless of their skills - I had none when I started- so that everyone can produce something to be proud of. I will do more courses with Ben!

Make a Windsor-style stool

I had a great time. Ben gives clear and interesting descriptions and demonstrations and helps you just the right amount. It’s good fun trying out all the different tools. Time flies! I love my new stool, too.

Make a Windsor-style stool

I really enjoyed this course - learnt loads and got a great little stool at the end of it. Ben really knows his stuff and communicates it very well; friendly, patient and just an all round good guy. His workshop is well set up too. I will hopefully be doing more with him soon. Thoroughly recommended.

Incredible fun and rewarding weekend. Ben is a fantastic teacher - extremely knowledgeable, patient and attentive. Not to mention a really nice bloke. Learned an awful lot and took home something I am proud to say I made. I'll certainly be returning to take another course soon. Cheers Ben!

Make a live-edge bench or table

Really enjoyed and looked forward to our evening sessions.

Ben took us through the process step by step and managed the class well allowing us to progress at our our pace but all finishing with a lovely piece of furniture for our homes. Would like to do another course with Ben in the future.

The course was more physical than I was expecting but definitely beats a session in the gym!

Such a great course with expert advice, tuition and expertise from Ben. We all produced wonderful benches and coffee tables...so satisfying. I’m looking forward to continuing in the very near future.

Make a live-edge bench or table

A great course for all experience of wood work. Ben is a great teacher and gives you the confidence to give everything a go unsupervised. You will surprise yourself with the end product achieved in a relatively small amount of time. Fantastic way to spend a weeknight!

Make a live-edge bench or table

A truly great course! Ben has designed a great course with the perfect mix of expert guidance and independance. The end product is so very satisfying because you'll know you did every step of the project.

In a world where 5 stars is the norm for these sort of things I wish there was a 10 star option for Ben's course.

Make a Windsor chair

I’ve been looking at doing a furniture making course for a number of years, and I’m really happy I undertook it with Ben.

He’s really helpful from the outset, and a very good teacher who allows you the space to learn yet always being on hand if you need a little extra guidance.

I’ve taken home an incredible chair, which I will enjoy for many years to come. I’d definitely recommend the course to anyone, and I can’t wait to sign up to another.

This is a great course, making a really nice chair, and I would highly recommend it. It's well structured and Ben is an excellent tutor, clear and patient. The outdoor workshop is in a beautiful piece of woodland and is a lovely place to spend the week. Sign up for the next course as soon as you can!

Make a Windsor chair

Just do it. I've now done a couple of courses with Ben and they've been ace. You learn so much over the 10 weeks, and Ben gives you the prefect balance of guidance and trust to try things out. After hectic days at work - doing woodwork is almost like going to therapy, it completely clears your head. I love it. I'll be signing up for more courses. Best investment I've made in a long time!

A thoroughly enjoyable course, delivered brilliantly by Ben. Ben created a comfortable and relaxed environment, whilst imparting his excellent knowledge of green woodwork and we all learned a great deal in a relatively small amount of time. Highly recommended!

Make a Windsor chair

I’ve recently completed Ben’s Windsor Chair course and I can thoroughly recommend it. I was a complete novice, but with Ben’s patience and step by step guidance I’ve finished the course with a beautiful chair... and I can't wait to make another!
Ben explains everything clearly and offers useful tips, but then he also gives you the space to figure it out for yourself. He’s always on hand for any questions or practical help too. Thank you, Ben!
