Steam-Bending Courses

I thoroughly enjoyed my day on the beginners steam bending course. Charlie is a great teacher and could not have done more to ensure we got the most from our time with him. Truly inspirational, humble man. Passionate about teaching and inspiring others. Thank you.

I learned so much in Charlies course! I had some experience with the technique from before, but still learned very very much, that it would have taken years to learn by myself. I will really recommend his courses, and I will definitely join one of his other courses as well.

Charlie Whinney has an expert knowledge of his subject and an impressive ability to share it. The course is about 'doing' and importantly CW is as keen for students to experience what doesn't work and why things go wrong as he is for them to achieve success.
Take his word for it on the warm clothes advice if you're attending in winter!

I've been on a few furniture making courses since I attended the professional steam bending course with Charlie, none have compared really. There is a lot to take in and Charlie was always happy to answer any questions I had, as well as show us techniques that were slightly off the course agenda. Charlie and the team provided us with a fun yet constructive atmosphere. I certainly learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the course, the beauty of the surroundings and the food (wow!!).

Enlightening, fun, rewarding, you can't ask for more than that, a great little course - superbly hosted by Charlie Whinney, set in beautiful surroundings, and a great beer and delicious food in the local pub with Charlie after a long but very fast moving day.

Steam-Bending Courses

Having passed Charlie's workshop while on a walk and poking my nose into see what it was all about I decided to sign up for a course (in 2016)
It was all I expected and more. Very 'hands on', selecting and chopping the trees, trimming the wood in preparation for steaming, bending small and large pieces - team effort; with some theory thrown in and an opportunity to make something to take away. A very full day, came away done in but very satisfied with the whole day.

Steam-Bending Courses

This was my first steaming course with Charlie, and I'm already looking forward to the next one. His enthusiasm and expertise swept everyone along, and Charlie made sure we all played a part. I learned an enormous amount in the day, and had a lot of fun doing it. Most importantly, steaming has now become a "tool" I can confidently use in my own workshop.

Steam-Bending Courses

it was an amazing course, intense, imaginative and very inspirational.
Steam bending is the opposite to fine dovetails. Its Art + science + bodging & Charlie makes it viceral.
He is a great teacher, happy to share his knowledge and considerable skills.
He also likes aiming seriously downhill on a longboard.
If you Feel the need for Speed and want to bend it, Charlie is ya'man

Tremendous teacher, I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Very inspiring, i am still messing about with steam boxes made from kingspan in the garden bending any piece of wood in sight! Charlie is to wood bending what Jimi was to Fenders, 100% rock and roll and a really nice bloke, get on it.
