I highly recommend this course.
My partner booked me on as a birthday present, a nice surprise.
The location at Alderfen Marshes is beautiful, they are doing great stuff there to use the resources provided by the marsh. We got to have a little walk around at the start. I went in early spring, there was a nice warm cabin with a log stove for the breaks but we could work outside under a cover for when it was raining. The owners provided delicious cheese scones.
Monica is a great teacher with a light touch, giving demonstrations and hints but also giving you the freedom to find your own way. She has also given support after the course helping me to get an axe sharpened in the right way.
A warning that I'm now hooked on spoon carving, have bought various books and tools and have piles of wood shavings dotted around the garden. Don't go on this course unless you are prepared to be similarly affected.

Superb introduction to this craft, the instructor was an excellentcommunicator who quickly understood my skills and needs. I came away with a hunger to do much more and develop my skills further. I would strongly recommend this course as an introduction to this craft.
