"A well structured course which was well attended. Philip spent a good amount of time explaining the minimum amount of tools we could reasonably have to begin working with wood and demonstrating how to use the powered tools in the workshop. In the afternoon we got our hands on the tools, squaring off a piece of wood and making up a mortise and tenon joint. We also got to try out the powered tools.
An excellent introduction from a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor!
Philip Hodge responded:
" Hi Jeremy
Thank you for your review which is much appreciated.
"I had a really useful and inspiring time at the Woodwork for Beginners course yesterday. Phil Hodge is a truly knowledgeable man who quietly inspires you to 'have a go'. He made everything look so easy and then was at hand in the afternoon to coach you through some important but basic skills. I made several school girl errors, but Phil was very gracious and not at all patronising in his advice. I can't wait to book the next course!"
