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.

Edd M reviewed: Beginners half-day 1-2-1 woodturning workshop for 1 person

"What an excellent day! Simon was fantastic, top bloke to chat to, made you feel comfortable and really knows his stuff. The environment was perfect, nice and warm, lots of teas and that lovely wood shop smell. The wood turning was so much fun, Simon shows you all the techniques whilst giving you enough space to try it for yourself and get a feel for it. Amazing day, I will be back for another lesson for sure."
