Nick reviewed: Green wood creative seating course (6 Days)

"Had such a great time on Peter's Creative seating course, was amazing how everyone was able to bring their own ideas and be supported to bring them to life. Peter, Toby and Badger were such patient facilitators and made such an encouraging environment for everyone to try out new techniques in such a beautiful setting. Highly recommended to anyone looking for creating some beautiful natural furniture."

Ed reviewed: Tool sharpening and maintenance

"I had a brilliant time at the tool sharpening course. I learnt some really interesting techniques for sharpening my tools. Peter was great and very helpful imparting his wisdom. I was particularly impressed with Toby who was very knowledgeable and very interactive honing in on everyone's particular area of interest. I'm sure he will be running the course on his own in due course! Can't wait to rejoin for a longer course working with some green wood! "

Peter Lanyon Furniture responded:

" Thanks Ed. I look forward to seeing you again. "

Jan reviewed: Green wood creative seating course (6 Days)

"Had the most amazing time on this course. I was a complete novice with virtually no woodworking experience whatsoever! My family and friends could not believe what I have achieved in the 6 days. Peter's experience is second to none and there seemed nothing he wouldn't let the group try. Toby and Badger were an amazing help, incredibly knowledgeable and always patient and understanding with plenty of ideas and inspiration. I can honestly not recommend this workshop enough. I have a beautiful bench in my kitchen and I am very proud of it. I feel I have created a family heirloom! Thank you. "

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

"I absolutely loved this course. So much is packed in to a short space of time. It has definitely given me the bug for green woodworking and a huge respect for Peter and his craft. Hannah was also lovely and very helpful. "

Peter Lanyon Furniture responded:

" Thanks Milly. Loved having you along!"
