"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."

"Peter's introduction to green wood furniture making was just fantastic. The setting is beautiful, Peter and Toby's tuition was first rate and the camaraderie of those of us on the course was also great. I think we probably all created something which was beyond our expectations and I'm certainly enthused to do more and will be back! Must also mention the quality of Peter's flapjacks which were of equal quality! Thank you...really enjoyed it and came away thinking I'd learned a lot!"

"I've been a fan of Peter's work for some time, and been trying to get on one of his courses for about 3 years. It was worth the wait and I learnt so much in the short space of time. Concise guidance with an abundance of patience made for a very memorable weekend, and a lovely piece of useable furniture. Thanks to Peter and Toby for your support and excellent flapjack."

"Wow, what an amazing two days! Whether you have any experience with wood or none at all, you will have a great time! It is a great course and you learn alot but I also had alot of fun, in stunning surroundings and with lovely people also there to make it a great experience. Its a great sensory experience too with the smell of the wood and the feel of it too. We had sunny and rainy points but the course is so well set up, we were able to work and enjoy whatever the weather, which was geat and relaxing too. So I loved it. There is always help at hand so I felt able and confident. Really highly recommend it and cant praise Peter and his intern Toby enough."

"A wonderful way to spend a weekend! Starting with a tree and taking home a table was extremely satisfying; taught and led brilliantly by Peter and Toby. If you are relatively handy like me this is an excellent course to learn about how to read and use wood thoughtfully. It left me inspired to build my own furniture for gifts and my own house."

"Excellent course! Peter is a master craftsman and an engaging and patient teacher. I was amazed at how quickly a group of (mostly) unskilled people became comfortable with the simple tools and were able to use them to produce striking pieces of furniture. Many thanks to Toby for his help, too."

Mick and Jane Howey reviewed: Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days

"With no previous experience of furniture making beyond simple DIY projects, we were amazed to complete the 2 day course each with a small table of which we are both very proud. The course guided us through each stage of the construction - every section clearly demonstrated by Peter with both he and his assistant, Toby, always there to provide help and advice. The course was a totally absorbing and an immersive experience with time flying by too fast! Would love to do another course. Thanks so much for a wonderful birthday present."

"A brilliant two day course, starting with a log and finishing with a beautiful bench. Peter and Toby gently guided our group through the processes we need to complete our chosen pieces. The instructions were clearly delivered and easy to understand and the tools were all a joy to use. The location was fabulous and the weekend flew by. Definitely looking to attend another course in the near future."

"A really superb teaching course. Peter’s style is informative, nurturing and gentle. He is able to impart his knowledge and expertise in a really supportive style which results in all the students being able to create an individual piece of green woodwork, many without any prior experience. I would certainly recommend the course and will be looking to attend again myself. Thank you Peter."

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

"I came to this course greener than the wood we were working with, and completely fell in love with this wonderful art form. It was a perfectly balanced weekend where Peter and his wonderful apprentice Toby, guided us through the process/techniques with wisdom and an inspiring depth of knowledge. There was room for play and experimentation too and I now have a charming stool (that I'm currently perching on), that will remind me of this happy weekend for a very long time. I cannot recommend this course enough!"

Peter Lanyon Furniture responded:

" Thanks Ari - total pleasure having you on the course!"

"Wonderful course with a wonderful teacher! Peter and his apprentice Toby were brilliant woodworking mentors- they were relaxed, helpful, calm and encouraging! It’s a green wood course so you use your hand tools mostly which is incredibly satisfying. We started outside chopping up logs and finish with a beautiful hand made stool! Very much recommend!"

" Thanks Alicia, glad you enjoyed it. Such a great group."
