I highly recommend his sessions/courses to anyone thinking about it."

Tom reviewed: Woodturning 90 min taster

"Chris was a great tutor. I had a great time and learnt so much in 90 mins. It was a great, friendly atmosphere to learn in and Chris's technical knowledge was really in-depth. He explained and demonstrated all the different tools and techniques in a way that allowed me to learn really easily. I managed to make a small pestle in the 90 minutes. I was super chuffed with what I made and I would definitely like to do another course with Chris. Cheers for your time fella!"

Amanda reviewed: Woodturning 90 min taster

"This is great. Went with no experience and Chris was soo patient and kind. He explained everything and was very reassuring. Chris repeatedly encouraged me to have the courage to use a variety of tools, even though sometimes I messed up he just calmly adapted what I was doing. If you are considering doing this my advice would be go for it. You won't regret it. You will come away feeling you have really achieved something. Thanks again Chris "

Paul Bradley reviewed: Woodturning 90 min taster

"This course was purchased as a gift for my 12 year old son, who is keen on woodworking. Chris, the host, was very patient and explained everything really well. He kept my son fully engaged throughout the session. After a few test runs, they then worked on a small project and produced a very nice bowl from wood. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone interested in wood turning."

Chrisjparker woodturning responded:

" Hi Paul Thanks for the recommendation Paul it was great to see a young lad with so much enthusiasm & appreciation of our craft. I'm sure Joseph is very proud of the bowl he made & rightly so well done Joseph. "
