Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

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.

Green wood chair making - 6 day woodworking course in Devon

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.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

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.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

I attended peter’s intro to green wood furniture making course in February- it was fantastic! It was a challenge for me, having never done anything like this before but Peter instilled confidence and enthusiasm through his demonstrations and patience. I’m so pleased with the finished product, a beautiful little coffee table; I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in bushcraft or just wanting to give it a go. Thank you, Peter.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

I attended the Introduction to Greenwood course in Jan ‘19 and loved every second of it. Peter was a fantastic teacher... inspirational, supportive, knowledgeable, encouraging, passionate... I could go on.

The two days flew by far too quickly as I was so engrossed in the process of making my little table and enjoying the charm of Peter’s rural workshop.

Don’t hesitate booking - you will love it.

Tool Sharpening and Maintenance

Peter is an excellent tutor, I have been fearful of sharpening tools and this course very much demystified the process for me. I went away with sharper blades and the tools and confidence to have a go at home. Peter also spent time showing us hints and tips on how to set up our planes and shaves to get the most out of them. This is a one day course that covers a massive amount of extremely useful stuff.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

I am ridiculously pleased with the side table that I made on this course under the guidance of Peter.

Peter is very talented at his work, and at teaching the necessary techniques to others.

Highly recommended.

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

Just LOVED these two days. Peter is a very good teacher and I came away with a beautiful ash bench as well as a whole new set of skills. Things for me that made the course particularly special were: having really good quality well-sharpened tools, and plenty of them, having a good choice of material to work with, and the way Peter managed our timing, so everyone completed a project.
