I had the pleasure of attending one of Les’s Woodturning class - it was brilliant.
He assessed my previous experience (total beginner) and doctored the lesson accordingly.
Extremely articulate, informational and a general fab guy I left having proudly turned two pieces very excited and inspired.

I cant recommend the experience enough.
Thanks Les.

Had a brilliant time, learning how to operate the lathe safely and came away with a good understanding of how to turn. Les is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor and puts you at ease. I enjoyed the day, which seemed to fly by!
I came away with a lovely scorched bowl and a xmas tree!! I have since purchased a lathe and Les was good enough to advise me on what was good and not so good, and has even offered to help me get started once i have the lathe set up, what more can you ask for!!

Attended one of Les wood turning courses this week and It was one of the best and most enjoyable things I have done. I came away with a desire to continue it as a hobby and a oak burr bowl that surpassed my expectations. Les is a great teacher he understands, and can simply explain any aspect of the process. and the one to one tuition was great. Highly recommended, Thank you Les.

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.

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.

I took my son to a Wood Turning Taster Session with Les and he had an absolutely fantastic time. He made a bowl out of oak, scorched it and lime waxed it. He loved being able to use the machines and coming home with something to show for his efforts.
