I had a brilliant time on this course. Peter is clearly an expert in what he does and he and his apprentice Toby are both brilliant teachers. I was a complete novice before the course and I came away with an absolutely beautiful and unique stool. Thank you guys, I will be back for more.

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.

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!

Response from Peter Lanyon Furniture:

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

An excellent two days that took us from logs to beautiful furniture. There was superb teaching with support and advice available at all times. I went as a complete novice and left with a real sense of achievement. It was amazing how relaxing it was working with traditional tools and crafting the wood. If you are even remotely interested I would go for it, you will be pleased you did.

Response from Peter Lanyon Furniture:

Thank you Tony - I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. Really good to meet you.

This is a wonderful course and a great introduction to furniture making and working with green wood. Lots of useful guidance but also a really relaxed atmosphere. Everyone on the course came away with a piece of furniture they were immensely proud of and lots of new skills.

In-person course
Corrie Oliver - - #32863

I feel very fortunate to have spent 6 days in the company of such lovely people, willing to give their support and expertise enabling me to make a very cute chair. In spite of being a novice I learnt so many new skills and was enthralled by the whole experience.... a retreat from the everyday, totally inspiring and balm for the soul! Thoroughly recommend it to anyone and feel enthusiastic to try another course.

Response from Peter Lanyon Furniture:

Thanks Corrie, for taking the time to write a review, and for being great company for the week. I look forward to meeting you again one day. If you need any help or advice on your green woodworking journey do let me know.

Was really looking forward to this course and it exceeded my expectations. Beautiful venue and location, attentive and supportive instructors. Thoroughly enjoyed all 6 days and came home with a stunning bench for our entrance hall. Would highly recommend this course to all abilities. You don't need to have any knowledge of wood working and you will be super pleased with the end result. Both Peter and Toby will guide you through the process from beginning to end. You wont be disappointed.

As a complete novice to woodworking, I had no idea how I would do on this course. However, Peter and his apprentice Toby were brilliant in instructing the group and we all came away with really amazing pieces of furniture. I thought I'd really messed up at one point but Peter fixed the problem so you can barely tell anything went wrong, which I was so relieved about! I would fully recommend this course to everyone, brilliant few days working with my hands in the Devonshire sun :)

Response from Peter Lanyon Furniture:

Thanks Steph, thoroughly enjoyed working with you. Enjoy tour new table. Peter
