"I came as a novice to woodworking green wood and learnt a lot over the two days. Both Peter and Toby were very helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed my time on this course. The tools in the workshop are also excellent and well cared for so it was easy to practice the techniques that were taught"

Ben reviewed: Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

"I attended a green woodworking course with Peter and I had a terrific time. Peter is an excellent teacher and taught our group the necessary skills needed to create our own piece of furniture. Both Peter and his apprentice Toby were very knowledgable and helpful and went the extra mile to ensure everyone was progressing well and were looked after. I couldn't be happier to recommend this course."
