Our setting provides ample inspiration for our work, and is perfect for our woodturning & pottery courses. Louise (ceramicist) - I studied at the Falmouth School of Art & Design and I am interested in various art forms, design and applied arts. Simon (woodturner) - I love working with wood & exploring its versatility. I'm the Secretary of the Ely Guild of Woodturners.

"We would highly recommend the wood turning and pottery courses, even for beginners we had a great day with Simon and Louise, their instruction was really clear as well as making the day fun. Great lunch and looking forward to collecting our pottery when ready."

Simon reviewed: Intermediate 1-day 1-2-1 woodturning workshop for 1 person

"Thank you very much for the super informative and well paced tuition that you gave me on the 1-1 woodturning course. Your enthusiasm was contagious and it was great to learn from your own experiences with this challenging activity; a real pastime in the true sense of the word! I can’t wait to get my garage cleared out (a mammoth task that may take me some time yet!) and fully set up with wood lathe and supporting tools needed to take on this new hobby. "

Blended Monkey responded:

" Hi Simon, So glad to hear that the day has inspired you to clear out your garage and pursue the craft. Good luck and do get in touch if you need any further assistance. — Simon"
