Green wood chair making - 6 day woodworking course in Devon

Excellent, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable. I learned an enormous number of new skills and techniques and built my confidence in working with green wood. Peter is a brilliant, highly knowledgable and patient tutor who guides you through calmly and with clarity. It's also a beautiful venue, and the tools provided were excellent, which all helps. I ended up with a beautiful chair but also much greater knowledge and skills, which I was looking for. Highly recommended.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

Myself and my partner did this course in May, neither of us had any prior woodwork experience so we weren't quite sure what to expect. Peter was very patient and excellent at explaining the various steps and new skills. We really enjoyed the course and had a great two days with Peter and Lulu. . We are planning to go back to do some of Peter's other courses at a later date.
Thanks
Megan and Reza

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

Excellent 2 days! Thank you Peter and Lulu. Peter's style is patient and encouraging, and his instruction very clear. Some woodworking skills, and particularly an understanding of the structure(s) of wood are an advantage before joining the course, though not absolutely essential. The working techniques help in 'reading' the wood to get the best out of it.
I can guarantee all of our course enjoyed it immensely.

Went on Peter’s green wood course this weekend and absolutely loved it. A fabulous way to spend a weekend - meet lovely new people - learnt a completely new skill AND have something beautiful to take home. Thank you Peter and Lulu.

The two day course is a great introduction to greenwood working. The course is the perfect gift, it gives the receiver a bespoke piece of furniture and developes new skills and interests. As a complete novice I was able to come away with a very handsome bench. Peter is calm, patient and has a conveyor belt of tea and biscuits. Highly recommended.

I attended in May 19. I highly recommend it for beginners and those with some knowledge of hand tools as well.
Peter’s informal teaching style is very effective and he effortlessly unites his course members on a journey through the mysteries of green wood working. Therapeutic and calming, this course offers a complete introduction to the use of all the hand tools required for green wood working and delivers a beautiful hand-made product to take home and use as well.
Just plain excellent.

Green wood chair making - 6 day woodworking course in Devon

I had made Windsor chairs before, so I was looking forward to learning about ladder backs and woven seats. It was a lovely week, great company, very friendly and generous help from Peter. I liked my finished chair too. I would highly recommend this course and will likely return next year for another week.

Friendly supportive tutoring in a relaxed small group setting. Beautiful area of the country. I have been inspired to try the methods taught at home and hope that the beautiful chair that I made might be reproduced.

Brilliant course. Peter is amazing, he is not only extremely knowledgeable and happy to share his experience but patient too. He clearly loves what he does and this shines through at the workshop. I actually can't believe I came home with a finished stool in just the two days. Highly recommend this course. I will do more. Thank you Peter.
