Allison Moore reviewed: French Polishing workshop with Rob Cain

"I was lucky enough to attend this course as a birthday gift. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was an absolute privilege to learn from someone with so much expertise, skill and passion. Rob was so patient and explained everything in a way that even an absolute beginner, like me, can understand. His passion for his work is truly infectious and I have caught the bug! Can't wait to start putting my new skills into action. Thank you for an amazing experience, Rob!"

The Old Polishing Shop responded:

" Hi Alison , thanks so much for all your efforts on the day , your results were amazing , and you were a pleasure to work with . I'm so glad you've taken so much from this day , and I'm here if you need me going forward, thanks again and speak soon Rob"
