Green wood chair making - 6 day woodworking course in Devon

What a week that was! An absolute delight working in my favourite material with like minded people. Peter is the most sensitive, patient and skilful tutor with a lovely sense of humour and a band of dedicated helpers including his lovely family. This is more than a craft workshop; it is a retreat, a meditation in wood and a joyous social experience with a lasting practical outcome.

An excellent course and thoroughly enjoyable. Despite being a complete novice, with Peter's patient, careful tuition, I managed to produce a lovely piece of furniture which I'm really pleased with. An added bonus was the relaxed setting, beautiful location in the South Hams and a great group of fellow students. I highly recommend this course and would love to do more! Thank you Peter (and helper Toby).

I’ve just returned from a brilliant two days with Peter - he’s a lovely guy with a great teaching style. Everyone on the course came away with a fab piece of furniture to show off. I’m looking forward to trying some of the techniques out at home.

Tool sharpening and maintenance

Absolutely brilliant day, would highly recommend to any one who uses any form of sharp metal to cut anything. Whether you you use a knife, axe, shears or plane you'll learn a huge amount about how to get it sharp and keep it sharp. So good, thank you Peter.

Tool sharpening and maintenance

An absolutely brilliant day honing my sharpening skills under Peter's guidance. He's an excellent tutor - patient and knowledgeable, with time for even the most stupid questions.

I took along some challenging and very knackered tools and came home with them transformed into razor sharp versions of themselves.

Thanks Peter.

Tool sharpening and maintenance

Really enjoyably course. Covered many different tools and options to sharpen them. Good group of people and excellent instruction from Peter. Even got through the day without cutting myself. Will definitely be considering other courses with Peter. Thanks Den

I attended the 2 day green wood furniture course and loved every minute. It was a small group which meant Peter had the time to help us individually throughout the day with help from a lovely girl called Row. We all walked away with beautiful pieces of furniture. Would highly recommend it!

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

What a joy to spend 2 days in a wonderful environment, with a bunch of lovely people making a useful and (in my opinion) gorgeous stool which is now sitting proudly in my kitchen. Peter is a generous teacher, passing on his skills in a way that a complete novice can understand and put into action. Green woodworking is the best way I have found to practice mindfulness and the perfect antidote to a stressful life. What’s not to love about this course.

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

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.
