"I joined Ernest's course at the Wooburn Craft School last year, with no previous experience of wood carving. It was wonderful. Ernest is a great teacher and the class was small and friendly so he was there at hand whenever advice was needed. The class was mixed ability: some beginners like me, and others more experienced, so there were also fellow students around to give advice and demonstrate what they were doing - many were producing quite intricate and detailed pieces after attending for only a relatively short time.
I would highly recommend this class to beginners as well as those with more experience. I attended the 10 week course evening class, and Ernest was able to be flexible about dates and worked around my planned holiday, so that was very helpful. I liked it so much I signed up for ongoing classes.
There are also several other types of craft lessons being offered at the Wooburn Craft School (I've just completed a stained glass course which was running there at weekends) so it's a good idea to check out their website and see what's planned. It's a very welcoming and friendly place to learn new skills."
