Great relaxed course. The day and activities were well thought out and whilst seemingly out of order the logic of not handing everybody a log and an axe in the first 10 mins was pretty sound!
The days' plan also allowed for everybody to work at their own pace to produce one or two spoons.
I think most people were so inspired that they ordered new knives and maybe axes as soon as they got home.

A very enjoyable day very well led by Jeffery. I learnt about the techniques of carving a spoon but also about the nature of wood. The pace of learning was great with a good mix of instruction and hands on experience. I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to learn this skill or just looking for a great experience.

Jeffrey is a patient, knowledgeable and friendly instructor, who clearly loves his craft and sharing this with others. The day was fun and interesting, and I came away with something I'm proud of! Thanks for a fab day!

Loved Jeffrey's course, such a great way to spend a day and learn carving skills to take with you anywhere and everywhere as long as you've got the tools! His approach was relaxed and informal whilst being jam packed with useful tips and techniques, and made everyone feel as ease with the new processes. Would highly recommend, I've since got my own knives and can resist an evening spent whittling!

Learning Spoon carving with Jeffrey is The Best! His intruction is clear and easy to follow and he is a keen observer of your process, which means he can offer insightful tweaks and adjustments to get you carving safely and confidently in very little time. I was really impressed with my first spoon and (my obvious talent notwithstanding) I would put that down to jeffreys excellent teaching style. Highly reccomended!

Jeffrey's workshop is a brilliant introduction to spoon carving. By the end of the workshop I had made two beautiful spoons, one from a spoon blank and the other by using an axe to chop down a log into my own spoon blank. I left the class hooked on whittling and axe work and enthused to make more spoons. Jeffrey is a great teacher: personable, patient and able to give clear concise explanations and instruction to beginners. I can't recommend his course highly enough.

Learning to carve with Jeffrey was just a brilliant experience from start to finish. His own spoons are beautiful and his knowledge extensive. There were four of us learning together and Jeffrey taught at a pace that was supportive of the slowest, but also personalised his approach to push on those who had a bit more experience. His passion for carving, natural materials and design is infectious and we all went home with a spoon to be proud of. I'm a spoon convert!!!
