Greenwood Spoon Carving

Superb day - everything I'd thought it might be plus more. Dave and Viv were excellent. I can highly recommend this course and a day of spoon carving. Sitting in close concentration under a canopy of ancient woodland with a mug of coffee, very pleasant company and expert and passionate guides. What's not to like! I've ordered my own tools and I'm on my way. Thank you!

This is a great course. Lots of practical information provided, and practice honing and sharpening a wide range of tools.

Especially appreciated the tutor's skill with my own tools - thanks Dave!

Nest Basket - a one day willow basket making workshop (Course inactive)

A great introduction to basket weaving and I'm very pleased with my end result! The saw mill was a fantastic and inspiring venue. Ray was very welcoming, gave really clear instructions and encouragement and shared his knowledge and passion of willow and woodland work throughout the day. A very rewarding and relaxing day. Thanks.

Bowl and Kuksa carving in Ecclesall Woods (Course inactive)

An inspiring and very enjoyable course in a lovely woodland setting. Nadine is a brilliant tutor - very encouraging, explains things clearly, lets you work at your own pace and is always on hand to help. I came away with two bowls and the basis of a new set of skills. Great weekend.

A great course creating a three legged stool. I had some previous knowledge regarding green woodwork but still learned a lot. The tutors were friendly, fun and very knowledgeable and the location was great. I'm intending to sign up to another course as soon as possible. Thanks to all concerned for an informative, fun and worthwhile day.

Leatherwork: Purse and Belt Making (Course inactive)

Great course Ruth was a warm and friendly tutor. There was enough material, equipment and plain understandable tuition for us to follow and come away with two complete pieces of work and ideas to do more. I'm already planning what to do next.

The day was really enjoyable. Nadine was encouraging and made the learning of the basics interesting and accessible. The setting was great, at Eccleshall Woods. Have been inspired to purchase my own pyrography pen, which is a good indication of how much I enjoyed the workshop! Many thanks to Nadine

Stake and Strand Basket Making - one day (Course inactive)

Thank you for a brilliant course. Wes was very knowledgeable about the subject and a great teacher. I would have liked less talking at the beginning and more doing, but that's just a personal thing.

Greenwood Spoon Carving

I very much enjoyed the day. The centre was beautiful, the tutor and his assistant Dave and Sam were great, and the other course attendees were really friendly and good-humoured. Although it was harder work than I expected, I was delighted to make the spoon and a spatula and hope to return for other courses5.

Basic bushcraft for kids (aged 8+.) (Course inactive)

Annie was energised by the whole experience and her 'weaved' plate and mallet are proudly on display at home. She said that it was the best activity day she'd ever done!
The instructor was very knowledgeable and approachable and when I came to collect Annie, she quite happily showed us both how to make string from nettles.
Thanks for a great day
