Richard G reviewed: Introduction to woodcarving - Spoon Carving Experience

"The spoon carving experience was enjoyable and productive. Also addictive. It looks like a new pastime is emerging. Delightful setting at Joy Farms. Hard not to feel inspired in such a creative and rustic environment. The carefully monitored camp fire providing constant supply of coffee and a tasty simmering lunch was a bonus. Adrian was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor who clearly wanted all members of the class to succeed. As a woodworking novice I was chuffed to turn a lump of wood into something resembling a spoon! Great day out."

"A great day, location and setup. Lovely mix of being in the workshop & outdoors by the fire. Thoroughly recommend it, totally different day out."

Sarah Louise reviewed: Beginner Basket Weaving Experience day - Surrey Hills

"My husband and I had an amazing day making baskets. Ellie was a great teacher and having never done it before it was very satisfying seeing my willow weaving become a basket :-) The open air workshop, views of the fields, copse, Lunch and tea by the open fire and bird song really made it a unique experience. A great gift & I'm looking forward to trying other crafts there too."

Sarah reviewed: 1/2 day Introduction to Greenwood carving

"A lovely relaxing way to spend 1/2 day, and easier to do than I expected. George is a great teacher and I’d thoroughly recommend trying this workshop. The shave horse was easy to use and satisfying! The indoor/outdoor craft workshop next to the camp/open fire ? was a lovely setting."
