Excellent course, very enjoyable. Les is very patient and a skilled instructor, even managing to coach me to turn a bowl I am really proud of. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting a start in the art of wood turning.
Thoroughly enjoyed course. I am very pleased with the bowl and candlestick I made, I liked choosing the piece of wood to use. Les is an excellent tutor.
I attended a day course and with Les's guidance, completed a bowl that impressed even myself, whos a beginner. . Good content and Les offers additional information plus is guided by the students. In fact I would consider attending again to devrlop more turning skills.
Les provided my husband and I with 4 hours of expert and friendly tuition. We were both able to come away with a beautiful bowl - far more professional looking than i ever thought possible. Les is a fabulous teacher and the one to one nature of the course really helped. We both thoroughly recomend this course and both are enthused to go back and spend more time learning this skill.
