Charcoal making course - Warminster Wiltshire (Course inactive)

In-person
Jake McAlister - - #16273

Pete is a great instructor, very knowledgeable and passionate. He came to a site that the project I work for was working on as part of a heritage skills training course for landowners. He was very professional and we got loads of great feedback.

Course was brilliant, both Jackie and Peter knew SO much to help you really get into this if its for you and help you see more options if its not.
Their set up in the forest is magnificent, they can teach everyone a LOT about how to care.
If you are unsure - just Do the course, you will not be disappointed.
Make sure you take lots of questions for Peter :-)


Make a Swallowtail Hay Rake - one day green woodworking course (Course inactive)

In-person
Elizabeth MacKenzie - - #15615

An excellent day run by a knowledgeable and patient team. Lots of different tools to use and skills to learn but Pete explained each step and method clearly and was always on hand to assist without taking over. Cups of tea from the kettle over the fire kept everything running smoothly and the participants were delighted with their completed rakes at the end of the day. Thank you!
