‘The best birthday ever’ - my mums comment at the end of our floating shelf workshop day. We had such a lovely time and learnt so much. David was so helpful and attentive, everything was explained and demo’d and he made time for all questions (no matter how off topic they got). We would totally recommend this course to anyone looking for expert guidance in a relaxed setting. Thanks again David!
We thoroughly enjoyed this workshop! David is extremely knowledgable and patient making sure our techniques were right. We are now the proud owners of 2 beautiful Ash floating shelves!
I had never made any jewellery before, but love wooden things, loved the look of the necklaces/pendants, so jumped at the opportunity to make one myself. The three hours went in a flash. It was lovely to get out of the city and so Interesting to learn how to make something from scratch. The pendant looks simple, but there were many different stages, the use of different tools and machinery, to arrive at the finished product. Dave is informative, patient, his teaching was interwoven with interesting facts, chats, guidance and support. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to returning. I had such a fun and enjoyable few hours in the workshop, there is a cosy wood burner in there too.
Myself and one other participant made pendants just before Christmas, with which we were delighted. It was great fun using all the equipment and Dave's teaching style is very supportive and patient. His passion shone out when he showed us his hand-made box of different woods over lunch. He is a true artist as well as craftsman, and will inspire you to be the same.
I found the course excellent. David is a very good and knowledgeable teacher. The one day course gave me more than just a floating shelf. It gave me an introduction to new woodworking skills and the confidence to develop them further.
I had never done any DIY- type stuff before I did David's course except to drive a couple of nails (badly) into a wall, so I was a complete novice. David was a patient and attentive teacher, and gave me just enough space for me to find my confidence and rhythm while also giving me that extra push for when I slacked off. And I went home with a floating shelf that I am so proud of! I loved the rural setting of the workshop and found the whole day enjoyable despite having worked really hard.
