Sophie reviewed: Introduction to Green Woodworking

"My family and I had such a fantastic day on the Introductory to Green Woodworking course with Matt and Emma. They were both incredibly welcoming and the different tools, tasks and techniques were all excellently explained and demonstrated. Matt was always on hand to offer advice and provide extensive knowledge both about the course subjects and the surrounding woodland area. Matt was also incredibly patient and we are very grateful for the extra time he took to support our son with some of the trickier tasks - he is incredibly proud of the work he was able to achieve during the day. The outdoor workshop itself is a thing of rustic beauty and the upmost effort is made to ensure you are comfortable throughout the day (their endless supply of tea was very much appreciated!) We would definitely recommend this course to anyone who thinks they might have an interest in green wood working … and we can’t wait to return and book onto another one of the courses! Thanks again for such a fab day! "

The pace was perfect, I felt like I had enough time with each activity and I was interested throughout the day. All in all an inspiring, mindful and valuable experience."

Sophie Davis reviewed: Forest School CPD - Rope Skills

"Another super course, Matt provided a really fun day for us. The rope skills were taught in a way that meant we continued to build on our skills throughout the session, finishing off with a rope bridge and a zip line."

"Hi Sophie, thanks for another lovely review, glad you enjoyed the course! Matt"
