Peter reviewed: Beginners Woodworking: Make a Bread Board

"Richard runs a very friendly course, we were encouraged to assist each other where needed. The facilities were really good, with a cafe on site for breaks. Those of us with more experience could move at a faster pace or modify the design of the board slightly. I'm very pleased with mine, almost a shame to use it for bread!"

Julian reviewed: Beginners Epoxy Resin Workshop (Afternoon)

"Arrived knowing nothing about Epoxy Resin. Richard shared information with the group in a very patient and friendly way, and we all learnt so much. Starting with setting and creating a sealed frame, and inserting live edged timber, to mixing the epoxy resin to the correct formula, adding colour and pouring it into the frame to create the miniature (very miniature) live edged table. A fab way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Highly recommended."

Daiva reviewed: Epoxy Resin Art Masterclass: Seascapes

"Lovely experience, I really enjoyed. Seascape coasters that I created look nice and other students' work also looked great when we finished. It took me 1hr 40 min to travel to the studio because I live far away but it was worth it and I would do it again. It was great to learn and to see how other students do it, also - learn from our mistakes. I'll be attending other classes in a future."

George Robertson reviewed: Beginners Woodworking: Make a Bread Board

"Great course! We were skilfully guided through the day by Richard. As well as being a great teacher he is a top guy and this was a big factor in the day being a success. All aspects of the course were thorough especially health and safety. Using the various power tools was my particular favourite activity. The end product was beyond my expectations. I am already looking to see which course I can do next."

Sarah Brown reviewed: Beginners Woodworking: Make a Bread Board

"What a great day! As a total beginner I learned a great deal about the process, machinery and safety elements of woodworking (special shout out the dust extraction, us asthmatics appreciate that!) It was a well run, friendly, funny and enjoyable day. I ended up with a very fine bread board I am proud of and i'll be back for more classes. Thankyou!!"
