A throughly enjoyable day spent in nature, learning to appreciate the hard work and skill required when working with wood and hand tools.
thanks Stephen!

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.

Really good day. Attending as a complete novice to Willow-weaving and something of a novice to making anything that looks like what it's supposed to be. I received just the right amount of assistance from Stephen who was knowledgeable, personable and kind. Friends and family all recognised my sculpture - although, to be honest, I only decided I was making a pig after it started to look like one. Highly recommended.

Fantastic morning. Stephen had a wealth of knowledge on this subject and bundles enthusiasm which kept everyone engaged. It was lovely to learn new skills. I’d highly recommend this to anyone. It’s a Great way to unwind on the weekend. Lovely camomile and honey tea to go with it. Thanks Stephen.

Superb course - Stephen was an absolutely brilliant teacher, taking us through the basics but getting us started on the practical stuff quickly and mentoring us through it. The whole ambience and atmosphere of the HQ is wonderfully earthy and authentic, and the morning course was an absolute delight. A fantastic introduction to wood-carving.

Most excellent afternoon with Stephen the yoda of spoon carving! Zen workshop to understand and learn the basics of carving wood and the basics of carving safety to go with it. Whole array of tools and techniques shown that 1 day later I’ve already forgotten but great to learn and I walked away with the basics of a spoon!!

Brilliant class.....learned loads in a very short time....and came away with a recognisable piece of work at the end of it all.....it was hard not to soak up the teachers passion for his craft....thinking of doing his one day outdoor workshop at some point.

Didn’t really know what to expect but it turned out a most enjoyable afternoon. Started by splitting a willow log, and whilst learning about the tools along the way, ended up with a spoon....of sorts...but I was a beginner. Recommend this course

Fantastic workshop! Stephen was a great tutor and was incredibly patient with me, with it being my first time carving and working in 3D. I learnt so much about different types of wood, their properties and a range of tools and techniques for wood carving. I would definitely recommend for beginners and more experienced carvers!
