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.

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!!

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!!!

My other half bought me this as a Christmas gift. I didn't know what to expect really, but Ian's passion was a joy to see, he was very informative and helpful, and the course was great fun, I really enjoyed the whole experience. The stool I made now takes pride of place in our living room. Thanks Ian. PS would totally recommend this workshop.

I had a great day with Ian teaching me to create a truly unique stool. He is a genuine and enthusiastic exponent of his trade and it was a privilege to have his mentorship. Would thoroughly recommend the experience and my little boy loves his new stool too.

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed the day' course with Ian. He is a really friendly guy with bags of experience, enthusiasm and encouragement. It was very satisfying to make the stools and mallets from raw wood with basic hand tools. Both stools look great at home and are useful furniture to have a round. I would recommend this course.

Just enjoyed a 'mother and daughter' day making lovely oak/ash stools' at Ian's workshop. It was a truly brilliant day learning this craft, which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Even though I was a complete beginner working with wood Ian was very patient and supportive throughout the process and we came away with a treasured piece of furniture and the memory of a fabulous day. Thank you Ian!!

My husband and I have just spent a fantastic day making a stool each with Ian. It was a birthday present which I didn't realise I even wanted to try.

This was bought for me as a gift and it could not have been better - an excellent and inspirational experience . Ian’s enthusiasm, knowledge, skills, friendly attitude and patience were exceptional throughout. He teaches you the skills and guides you through the whole process of creating a piece of furniture you can be confident you’ll be proud of. A thoroughly rewarding day and highly recommended experience!

Ian's course was a fantastic way to switch off from the everyday pressures of normal life and lose yourself in the simple pleasure of green woodworking. The location was superb and working in the early autumn sunshine was such a tonic compared to my usual desk-bound work. All in all a very good day and I walked away with what is now used as a small side-table to boot. Thanks Ian.

This experience was given to me as a birthday present. It was an excellent present. The course was fully hands on and extremely rewarding to attend. Ian is very knowledgeable and very friendly. The course was relaxed and there was plenty of time to complete each stage of the project without feeling rushed. The stool I made now has pride of place in my home and I sincerely look forward to visiting again for another one of his courses. I would recommend his courses to everyone.

An absolutely amazing experience. Really enjoyed the workshop. Ian has done an excellent job of introducing the variety of traditional woodworking tools and techniques, and guiding us through various stages. Brought home with me a high quality stool, and a mallet that I made during the workshop.
