Five day woodwork course - tools

I did course 1 and then booked course 2 immediately afterwards, both courses are excellent and really bring your woodworking skills out. The people and the place is better than I could of wished for, I highly recommend this course. I now have a beautiful hand made table in my hallway, thank you very much Richard and Mark.

I have just completed my Step Stool - Course 1. Excellent tuition, help and advice. Relaxed informal atmosphere, safe working practices emphasised. I have now a piece of furniture that would sit along side any of our existing furniture, on show. Functional but stylish.

The quality of tuition was exceptional
Along with the practical work there is a 30minute lecture at lunchtime which was really informative and gave great guidance on the best tools and what to avoid.

I made a spinning stool which far exceeded my expectations on what I would be able to do. Lots of practice on a particular technique before attempting on the stool, and given guidance but not interference.

No question too trivial and very supportive.

Throughly enjoyed the course, and I was very happy with the Spinning Stool that I made, my first ever wood working project.

Richard and Mark give you just enough tuition so that you feel confident in what you are doing, and always have an eye open for when you start to go wrong.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in wood working.

I attended this course in March 2019. An excellent course, well lead by Richard and Mark. Facilities were very good and the lunctime "toolbox talks" were very imformative. Thanks very much.

I thoroughly enjoyed my week in Penrith. The course has taught me the right way to sharpen, set up and use hand and power tools, in addition to teaching some very useful woodworking skills and techniques. Richard and Mark provided a very relaxed and enjoyable place to learn, explaining things clearly and giving me the confidence to go away and try things for myself. I hope to go back for course 2.

Thank you! An amazing week full of information and opportunities. A well structured course that allowed me to explore the use of wood and a wide variety of tools and techniques to achieve the desired results. If you are interested in working with wood this course offers an excellent foundation.

Outstanding on every level! What stands out the most when you first step into The Wood Workshop is the atmosphere; you feel welcomed by the building itself, even before you meet Richard or Mark. And what can I say about them ... two truly gentlemen with a way of teaching that inspires you to want to move your skills and confidence just that little bit further each day. Never any pressure, just the fun of learning at your own pace. Thank you both for an amazing week.
