French polishing & wood care - beginners course

Fantastic experience! Oliver is a great teacher with a professional and kind approach. You benefit from having your pice of furniture restored and the whole process of polishing is extremely satisfying. I recommend not only as the way to learn a new skill but also to have an unforgettable day of fun. The joy of restoring the beauty of wood furniture you will never forget.

French Polishing & Woodcare - 2 day Intermediate workshop

An excellent 2 day course, with an experienced and very effective teacher. I took a Pembroke table that was in need of a lot of TLC. Although it became a bit of a rush towards the end, we got through the entire process and I now have a wonderfully restored table. Oliver is an excellent teacher, who clearly has a wealth of knowledge and experience - and has the ability to teach it well. I’m confident now to work on my own on other pieces.

French polishing & wood care - beginners course

What a joy to have a day’s tuition with Ollie! He is such a good tutor, very knowledgeable and patient and made all the processes straightforward and easy to understand, my lovely sheet music box was transformed back to its original state in a few hours. I thoroughly recommend French polishing for beginners at Ardington School of Craft, such an enjoyable and productive day.
Many thanks

I enrolled on one of Ollie's French polishing courses. Extremely glad I did as I have now come away with the skills and confidence to strip and refinish wooden furniture to a high standard.

Painted Furniture & Upcycling with Woodcare - 1 Day Beginners

I spent 2 days with Ollie renovating an old ugly chair. By the end of the course it was transformed into a modern, usable and attractive piece of furniture. The detailed step by step instruction is invaluable. I will be booking a longer course next year as there is so many techniques to learn. Thank you Ollie!

Painted Furniture & Upcycling with Woodcare - 2 day Professional Workshop

Ollie is a brilliant tutor - he is an expert in his field and went out of his way to ensure I learnt everything I had set out to. There was a mixture of people there learning for their hobby and people learning professionally.

The venue is in a beautiful part of the world so there was a real sense of escapism.

I will definitely be back for more courses. I highly recommend Ollie. A lovely guy and a brilliant teacher!

French polishing & wood care - beginners course

I would recommend taking the 2-day or 5-day courses to really give yourself the time needed to upgrade antique furniture. Having said that, the one day course is fully comprehensive, and teaches you how to turn your old furniture into something that you will be proud to show your friends and family.
Oliver is a great teacher, all the materials are top quality (all mixed and prepared by Oliver), and the class sizes are small so you get more time to ask your own questions.

5 day Professional Furniture Refinishing Workshop - Traditional & Contemporary

Oliver is a very dedicated and knowledgable professional with whom I had the pleasure to work and train for a whole week in July 2019. I highly recommend this course to professionally trained furniture conservators like myself as this insight into the craft sheds light onto the manufacturing process of wood polishing. I felt extremely welcome and Oliver was very keen to share his knowledge and experience with his students.
