I had a one on one day tuition with mark and it was worth its weight in gold. Mark is an excellent teacher with tremendous patients and his way of explaining turning methods are so practical and easy to understand that it made the day truly enjoyable and very beneficial. I feel that the days teaching coupled with the very in-depth notes will benefit me for years to come as i progress on my turning journey. Thanks Mark
Cheers Mark

Spent an exhausting but brilliant day with Mark earlier this summer. He managed to cram so much in - unlocking the magic of this hobby, but always with an eye to the importance of safety. And all done with great humour and enthusiasm.
Wholeheartedly recommend.

Response from Mark Hancock:

Thank you Nick. Receiving such feedback is the real incentive for what I do.
All the best Mark

I recently had a 1-1 tuition day with Mark through a bursary. Having not had tuition for a few years it was good to recap some basics! Mark was very accomodating and flexible to my needs experimenting with thinly turned green flowers. It is clear how knowledgable Mark is and I went home with lots of notes of tips and tools to try. Mark is also very happy to offer help and support beyond the day - it's a very relaxed environment and I'm sure I'll be back for another day!

Response from Mark Hancock:

Thank you Matt for your comments. It'll be interesting to see how the flowers have developed.

Spent a day with Mark. Should have made it 2 days. Will be returning!

I learned sufficiently to give me the confidence to get working on wood from my garden and to achieve acceptably good results. Mark made it look easy and engendered the belief that it would be easy for me too.

Mark provided a good balance of skill, safety and enthusiasm.

Highly recommended.

Response from Mark Hancock:

Thank you Jeremy. Hope you are making good use of that bowl gouge.

Great course. Went through everything a beginner could want, but clearly moved with your needs and skills. Mark was patient and supportive throughout the whole two days. Not just on how to achieve the skills, but had a thorough knowledge of kit, tools, equipment that you may want to set yourself up. Definitely recommend to anyone with an interest in wood turning - whatever your level

Response from Mark Hancock:

Thank you Jim for your feedback. Enjoy your new hobby.

Spent the day with Mark which was very informative and enjoyable.
Mark knows his craft and is happy to explain things again if it doesn't sink in the 1st time. He makes it look so easy.
Need to practice now!

Just undertaken Mark's excellent course on the basics of wood turning. As a complete novice if was great to get sound advice on the tools you need (and don't need!) and to benefit from his wealth of experience on the techniques and safe working practices for turning. All delivered in a comprehensive, but understandable manner with a good dose of humour thrown in. Two full days so definitely value for money and a great experience. Thanks Mark!

As a beginner to wood turning I found the day full interactive, covering everything I wanted - from tool maintenance, Parallel and cross grain turning. Mark was extremely patient and knowledgeable and tailored the course to my needs. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending one of Mark’s courses.

Mark is exceptional! Extremely knowledgeable, assesses ability to pitch the day at the right level, and communicates clearly and with good humour. The day was full of useful theory with the notes to support it, and lots of hands-on. We talked all day, exploring Mark's extensive experience, and nothing was too much trouble. A perfect day to really get me started in wood turning. I will have to go back when I have a few pieces under my belt.

We gave my 15 year old son a 1-1 day course with Mark as a Christmas present. He had a wonderful time and learned so much. He was a complete beginner and, with Mark's help, made a lovely bowl. He is now enthusiastic to do more and cannot wait to acquire his own workshop. We are delighted with Mark's tuition and help and recommend him wholeheartedly.
