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."

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."

"If ever you thought, I'd like to make something for the kitchen, then this is the course for you. Master craftsman Adrian guided us through taking a piece of wood and made it into something resembling a wooden spoon, a great day of learning a new skill."

Cyra Carley reviewed: Introduction to woodcarving - Spoon Carving Experience

"I'd highly recommend the one-day spoon carving day - such as enjoyable, creative, mindful day in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Adrian was an excellent teacher, and Sarah made a delicious lunch that we had round the camp fire. A great day, and I was delighted to come away with an actual spoon I'd made out of a block of wood!"
