An excellent day's introduction to wood turning. Simon was a great tutor allowing me plenty of time on the lathe and stepping in when I needed support (quite often!). I've wanted to try wood turning for some time and couldn't have had a better introduction.
Louise kept us well watered and fed so, all in all, a very enjoyable day.

Response from Blended Monkey:You're welcome, Brian and thanks for the lovely review. You were a great pupil who listened and persevered. I wish you well in your future turning endeavours and please feel free to reach out if you need advice.
Simon was really patient and friendly, judged my learning pace really well. Excellent lunch and kept well watered. I will be back to further my knowledge. Simon has a real passion that shines through ! Came away with pieces of work I am really proud of and a thirst to develop further. Inspiring!

Response from Blended Monkey:Christian, you were a pleasure to teach and picked up the craft really well. I look forward to helping you progress in the craft, and, now that you have a lathe, you can practice, practice, practice! 😊
Simon is a really nice guy, and did a good job of teaching me not only the basics of wood turning, but also what tools and equipment I should get as a beginner.
I highly recommend if your a beginner who's thinking about having a go at wood turning.

Response from Blended Monkey:Hi Tom,
A wonderful and inspiring day course! As an absolute beginner I learnt so much and came home with a magnificent bowl and other bits. A really warm and friendly couple, Simon’s teaching was well paced and Louise provided a great lunch and never ending cups of coffee. Cannot recommend too highly!

Response from Blended Monkey:Hi Ben,
Simon’s woodturning course was a surprise birthday present from my daughter, something I have always fancied trying. I was a complete beginner but with Simon’s guidance, patience and kindness I was pleased and surprised to come away with what I thought were three amazing pieces. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to try their hand at something new. Many thanks also to Louise for the very welcome refreshments throughout the day.

A good day spent with Louise fun with throwing on the wheel and some slab work. Finished about 4 bits of work and Louise fired them and sent them by post to me a few weeks after the course. Had a nice lunch and both Louise and Simon were very helpful . A full day well spent.
