Monica reviewed: Spoon carving for beginners - afternoon

"A wonderful afternoon with 4 other 'students' and Stephen who had patience and humour in his teaching us. Calm, peaceful, non-competitive, joyful, relaxed but also focused, the time sped by and could have stayed for hours. One of the best afternoons of my summer. "

Creative Nature HQ responded:

"Thank you Monica for your lovely words! "

Penny reviewed: Spoon carving for beginners - afternoon

"Really enjoyed our spoon carving. Lots of freedom to design a spoon ourselves and choose the piece of wood to use, and learnt how to use a variety of tools. Our spoons weren't finished by the end of the session, but we've brought them home to finish ourselves, and have been told what we need to do. We were lucky that the other people didn't show up to our class, so it was just the two of us, so we got a lot of individual help. "

Creative Nature HQ responded:

"Thank you Penny a lovely gentle session, I do hope you managed to finish your Spoon's! All the best Stephen "

Hannah Lees reviewed: Forest workshop

"A beautiful experience carefully created by Stephen to be gentle and kind. Stephen is an excellent teacher, recognising participant's strengths (and weaknesses!) encouraging and supportive as well as being charming, generous and enjoying a giggle. I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a fully holistic experience."
