Chair making course at Sallerton Wood

In-person course
- - #30889

Really wonderful experience and such a sense of achievement when the chair finally comes together. Great location and fantastic facilities. Andy was incredibly knowledgeable and very calm and patient. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to do something creative outside. It is suitable for people of all levels experience and we had none.

Excellent course for learning some basic woodworking skills using non-powered tools. The Shave Horse is a very useful tool to come away with after a weekend of learning these skills.
The woodland setting is a great place to spend a few days and Andy's easy and laid back teaching skills combine with his in-depth knowledge to make this an experience to remember.

Response from Sallerton Wood:

Thanks, Ashley, for your kind review. We're very pleased that you enjoyed the course, and we would be pleased to see you back at Sallerton Wood sometime in the future. We hope that you get many hours of pleasure using your shave horse.

Introduction to green woodwork course at Sallerton Wood

In-person course
- - #30494

I had a most enjoyable day and, by the end, felt I had received a good grounding in the basic techniques of using the woodworking tools. Andy was a very clear and patient tutor, and was happy to demonstrate repeatedly those techniques which any of us had not grasped immediately. I look forward to coming on another course in the future.

What a great 3 days. Super location, relaxed atmosphere - helped by having a really friendly group of attendees. Andy is thorough, patient, very skilled and good at conveying those skills to others, whatever their ability level. Whether you are a complete novice or just want to add to / hone your skills then I can highly recommend booking a course here. I'll certainly be back.

Kuksa carving at Sallerton Wood

In-person course
- - #24657

We had a really lovely couple of days. It was so nice to be in the woods, listening to the stream while being completely absorbed in chopping, sawing and carving a bit of wood!
Andy was very calm with a relaxed style and was always on hand when we had a question.

Response from Sallerton Wood:

Thanks very much, Deb, for posting a review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the course and the proximity of woodland and stream whilst working on your kuksa. Hope to see you and Mick back at Sallerton Wood again one day.

This was an amazing course, fantastic setting, run by a friendly knowledgeable trainer, Andy.

I have gone from knowing nothing to having the confidence to use a shave horse to shape wood, a pole lathe to finish the wood and shape to the correct size, splitting logs and using an axe, and then fixing it all together to make a shave horse of my own.
Brilliant fun.
Would recommend this course to everyone
Also have to say the food provided was so lovely.

Response from Sallerton Wood:

Thanks very much, Jayne, for your review and recommendation. We're very pleased that you enjoyed the course, and the provided lunches. We hope that you have lots of fun using your new shave horse for making your own greenwood items.

An amazing two day course making a shave horse. This was one of the most enjoyable courses I have done, and I have done many!! Andy was friendly and attentive in looking after us and making sure we had the help and guidance we needed the whole time. The venue, Sallerton Wood, was just the best setting bringing a wonderful tranquility and relaxation to the course. A beautiful setting. I learnt a lot on this course and will be looking to book another!! Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative two days, great to get into the outdoors environment, even better to be shown what can be done with a shave horse...and then put them into practice...Andy demonstrates techniques such that even I had a chance of picking them up, well done Andy, and thanks.
My horse has been at home a week and is still standing 😊

Response from Sallerton Wood:

Thanks for posting your review, Steve. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the course.
Hope to see you back at Sallerton Wood one day.
