I couldn't wait for my spoon carving day. Jack was a really good, engaging, thorough teacher. Having a small group was perfect also. He patiently demonstrated and explained all aspects of carving and definitely gave us the confidence to (hopefully) carry on. Thank you Jack!

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

My pleasure Jody! Great to meet you both, good luck on your spoon carving journey!

A great way to spend a wet Sunday - under a gazebo! Jack was well prepared and an excellent tutor. He is very knowledgeable and happy to share his skills and enthusiasm for wood carving. We had good quality tools to use which made the learning easier. Already booked on the bark course!

Had a great day, despite the rain! Such an absorbing (and potentially addictive) activity! Jack’s teaching was excellent.

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thankyou! It certainly helped you all remaining in good spirits despite the damp! See you again.

Had a really good time, even though it was raining and cold, we sat under a gazebo and everything was good. Made a spoon. Talked about interesting stuff. Enjoyed the other people there. Very welcoming relaxed atmosphere. Jack is very engaging. Really glad I did this. Wasn't sure what to expect.
It was very good.

This course was amazing! Jack was a very calm and encouraging teacher, full of knowledge. Walford Mill is a beautiful location and the staff are excellent, with lots of other things to see. I would love to do more courses there soon and visit their wonderful exhibitions.

I recently attended a spoon carving course run by Jack and it was a fantastic experience. The event was extremely well organised and Jacks delivery style ensures a relaxed learning experience. He built confidence step by step and by the end I had a number of projects completed.
Would definitely rebook for more courses.
Thanks Jack

What a great day! Jack was friendly and approachable. The course layout meant everyone progressed together and left with not just a spoon, but the techniques and knowledge to safely continue carving at home. Highly recommended!

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Cheers Seth! Hopefully see you again on 'The Next Level' Workshop!

What a great day. Jack gave very clear instructions, was attentive to the group, timely, knowledgeable... He was also totally "on" the Covid issue, but in a low-key way. I felt very safe. What else can I say. Unhesitating recommendation.

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thanks Rebecca, so glad you enjoyed it!

He is a truly excellent teacher. He carefully breaks down content and provides memorable pieces of theory, application and practice. The course was incredibly fun, relaxing, and we all walked away with new skills, and a beautiful spoon!

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thanks for the kind words! So glad you enjoyed it!

I wanted to start 2020 learning new skills and spoon carving had been on my bucket list for a while so when I saw the course I signed up and what a course it was! Jack is an excellent teacher and explained in detail each step of the way to producing my final spoon with all my fingers intact! It was such a great day and a lot of fun and I can’t wait to sign up for the improvers course soon. Would recommend his course to anyone looking for a well priced fun day.

The 1 day course from Fazey Woodcraft was brilliant!

Jack’s knowledge of wood and carving is huge and his approach to the course was perfect. Letting us learn our own mistakes but also helping at the right times so we didn’t ruin what we were making.

This workshop was a great thing to do. Carving is very therapeutic!

I would highly recommend this to anyone, even if they don’t consider themselves to be a practical person.

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thanks Joel. 👍

Jack has something for everyone. I had a little experience carving spoons and my wife had none but we both learned a lot throughout the day. The course felt relaxed and we both felt like we got all the instruction we needed.

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thanks Ben! Get yourself on 'The Next Level' spoon carving workshop.... 👍👍

Jake was very clear, and explained things well, before we started. He watched us and helped us when we needed, and he was encouraging. I had never done anything like this before, and so was worried I'd get it all wrong, but learning the right way to do things was valuable.

I'm not sure how many spoons a person needs though, so I'm hoping to learn to carve other things once I get better at spoons.

Response from Fazey Woodcraft:

Thanks for the review Wendy.. and for the record you can never have enough spoons!

Eaters, servers, stirrers, cookers, lifters, flippers, soup spoons, slotted spoons, ice cream spoons, tea spoons, mini-scoops for coffee, spoons for getting into narrow necked jars, salt spoons, sugar spoons, left hand spoons, right hand spoons.
Oh and of course giant campfire serving spoons!

😁

Hope to see you again.

Jack.
