Introduction to green woodwork course at Sallerton Wood

In-person course
Henry - - #34735

I had a great day out in such an amazing setting. It was so interesting to find out about selecting and splitting up green wood to work with and then to be shown and learn to use traditional tools in the well-equipped workshop shelter. Andy is extremely knowledgeable and made it all seem so easy. I came away not only with the things I’d made during the day but also eager to do more as soon as I get the chance. Thanks for an excellent day (not to mention the tasty lunch and afternoon cake).

Response from Sallerton Wood:

Thank you so much for that lovely review, Henry. We are delighted that you enjoyed the course so much, and the lunch and cake! We'd love to welcome you back to Sallerton Wood at any time in the future.

A most enjoyable 2 day course carving a Kuksa.

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.

Make a shave horse at Sallerton Wood

In-person course
Ashley Golder - - #30509

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.

Carole Constable - - #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.

Response from Sallerton Wood:

In-person course
Deb - - #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.
