Ian reviewed: Carve a spoon from a freshly felled log

"The course taught by Ben was excellent, learnt many things that will improve my carving. The venue is idyllic, Melinda and Emma are very friendly and welcoming and certainly look after you, there seemed to be an endless supply of tea or coffee with cake and the lunch was superb."
