Eva Stacey reviewed: Stool making course at Sallerton Wood

"What an amazing 3 days we had making our stools! In a methodical way, Andy guided us through the process of cleaving the wood, carving and shaping it in order to produce a very treasured and functional stool which we are now proud owners of. Being immersed in our “work” and spending the whole time in the beautiful Sallerton wood was both invigorating and calming. We are looking forward to joining Andy and Jane next year for another adventure! Thank you so much for a fab experience! "

Sallerton Wood responded:

" Thank you very much indeed, Eva, for your kind review. We are so pleased that you and Lesley enjoyed the course so much, and the experience of being in Sallerton Wood. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sallerton Wood when you return next year for another course. In the meantime, enjoy using your stool! "

Andrew reviewed: Chair making course at Sallerton Wood

"This was an excellent course. The tuition was superb, Andy’s approach was supportive and patient. He effectively combined group demonstrations with one-to-one guidance. As a novice to green woodworking Andy pitched things at a level that he knew was achievable for me but also sufficiently challenging allowing me to create a chair that I feel proud to have made. The drinks and lunch breaks in the woods allowed everyone to get to know each other and fostered a wonderful supportive environment amongst the participants. The woods are beautiful. I chose to ‘wild camp’ on site which again provided the opportunity to chat and get to know other participants giving the course more of a retreat atmosphere."

Sallerton Wood responded:

" Thanks, Andrew, for that very positive review of your recent experience at Sallerton Wood. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the course so much, and also appreciated the company of others on the course. Thanks also for commenting on the woodland itself, and the wild camping available there. We hope that you enjoy the chair that you made for many years to come, and we look forward to seeing you again at Sallerton Wood if you choose to visit again. "

Arthur Hocking reviewed: Chair making course at Sallerton Wood

"Just finished the 8 day Large chair making course. Had a great time! Met some lovely people who i really got to know over the 8 days. Was a lovely way to slow down from the crazy pace of modern life. The atmosphere and setting is welcoming to everyone and you are fully submerged in the wilderness. You are shown what is capable to do with a froe, your hands and a little bit of patience. Andy was a brilliant teacher and his wife Jane makes the best home made elderflower cordial! "

Sallerton Wood responded:

" Thank you very much indeed, Arthur, for your kind comments. We're very pleased that you enjoyed the course, its tuition, and the natural woodland environment in which it took place. Jane will be very pleased to see your comment about the elderflower cordial too! We look forward to seeing you back at Sallerton Wood if you choose to visit us again in the future. In the meantime, enjoy the lovely chair that you made. "

Michelle reviewed: Introduction to green woodwork course at Sallerton Wood

"I have recently done the introduction to green woodwork course with my 10 year old son and we had an amazing day together. Andy was really good at ensuring we all felt comfortable and included despite the age range and had a lovely way of teaching us about woodwork. It is a beautiful location and we were keen to book again to spend more time in the woods 😃"

Sallerton Wood responded:

" Thank you very much indeed, Michelle, for your kind review. We're very pleased that you and your son Blake enjoyed the course and the location in which the course took place. It was a pleasure to have the two of you on the course, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Sallerton Wood when you return for another course or event. "
