Oak stool making experience - rustic carpentry & green wood work

I would highly recommend Ian's oak stool making course - I took my Dad for his birthday and we all had a great time. Ian was very friendly and helpful and we all learnt new skills! It was very satisfying to bring an oak stool home. Thanks very much Ian!

Ian's workshop was amazing, we took my father for his birthday and we were blown away by how much fun we had. Ian was very patient when showing us the different ways to create the stool and the day was paced really well. The stools we made were amazing quality and it was a really enjoyable experience! It was also really interesting learning more about woodworking and the different techniques involved, I would highly recommend this course! Thanks for an amazing day, we really enjoyed it!

Rustic oak garden bench - one day course

I purchased my husband a course for two from Ian. I must admit I was nervous about joining him but we had the most wonderful day. Ian is a patient and calm tutor of his beloved craft. The bench is absolutely lovely and is admired by everyone who sees it. I can recommend this course 100%.

We had a fantastic experience doing this course with Ian. Perfectly structured course, firstly learning how to make a mallet and then transferring the skills to making an absolutely beautiful stool each. We are so happy with our stools in our home. Ian is a fantastic teacher and a really interesting man - we really enjoyed his company for the day. Thank you again!!

Had a really enjoyable time crafting with Ian, would highly recommend this experience as even with no woodworking skills I came away with a lovely stool and a mallet.

Make your own green woodworking 'Shave Horse' from Oak & Ash

Ian fitted me in at short notice with a condensed day, which worked out well for both of us I think. Fantastic day of learning yet more new skills and came away with a great new device which I was very pleased with. The only small issue now, is finding some spare cash for all the new tools I want to buy.
Well recommended and a good development from the rustic stool course for those wanting to learn a bit more.

Rustic oak garden bench - one day course

My wife gave me the bench making experience as a gift. In fact we worked together on it. Ian has everything ready and supplied some lovely oak pieces for the seat and back. We used ash for the legs and chestnut for the back supports.
We used traditional hand tools to do the shaping and smoothing. The result was super and now sits proudly in our garden.
Ian was helpful and patient.
Our arms and shoulders were aching, but we had a rewarding day and a bench that should outlive us.
Thanks Ian.

We both had a great day and learnt so much. Ian was a really good tutor, very encouraging and helpful. I would highly recommend this course for its therapeutic effects as much as for the finished products which we were really pleased with. Thank you Ian!

Rustic oak garden bench - one day course

What a fantastic day! I bought this for my wife as a Christmas gift, and we got to take it on a sunny Mother's Day. Ian taught us so much and gave us the skills to make a lovely bench. A full day and we definitely caught the bug--we will be back to make more in the future. Definitely recommend--you won't be disappointed!

An excellent day with Ian, making oak stool. Enjoyed meeting fellow 'trainees' Sam and Ian. Learned a lot, really practical day, and I really enjoyed Ian's teaching style, keep sit simple, is very encouraging and let us get on with it. Already planning what else I could come back and do. To cap it all, weather was magnificent for March, well worth the money and drive down from Manchester. Thanks Ian.

Just back from making a oak stool, what a great day enjoyed every minute of it. And very pleased with the stool, Ian was very helpful and didn't rush us, fed us coffee and biscuits to keep energy levels up
Thank you for a great day

Oak stool making experience - rustic carpentry & green wood work

Yesterday I spent a very enjoyable few hours with Ian and a couple of fellow gift voucher recipients. It was a great day, with a very knowledgeable Ian passing on some of his years of expertise. After making a mallet out of a log to returning home with a very robust stool...much to my family's pleasant surprise.
I would recommend the course and enjoyed meeting my fellow stool-makers too.

Rustic oak garden bench - one day course

My husband and I had the most amazing day making a beautiful garden bench. Going from chunks of wood and branches to a bench to be proud of was frankly astounding. Ian was really helpful and full of knowledge. The day was so relaxing and it was great to learn new skills. Next time we’ll come back with the kids! Thank you Ian!!

Rustic oak garden bench - one day course

Fantastic way to spent a cold winter day. A warm fire to walk to before starting then offerings all day of hot drinks. Then comes the course. A delight for any ecoerince of woodwork or enthusiast. Starting with making a rustic wooden mallet from locally sourced ash from bradgate making it with hand tools. Then making a stool with it and the tools from wood also sourced from bradgate. Help all the way and the experience of his carpentry skills and knowledge is incredible. Reccomend for all!!!
