"Was given this course as a gift for my birthday.
I had a fantastic day, from meeting Robert and the other carvers to finally coming out with a spoon. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with plenty of space and time for learning and figuring out how to get a fresh log to turn into something resembling a spoon. All of the tools are provided, are very sharp, and are clearly explained before you're let loose on the unsuspecting wood.
It was a really great day, and I'm very grateful to Robert for the teaching, and to my wife for the gift. Highly recommend."
"I had the pleasure to have a full day laughing and carving spoons in Robert's studio. Robert is an exceptional carver and teacher. It is definitely one of the best craft workshops I have ever been to. Go for it!"
"I had a memorable day at the woodcarving course on 6 August. The company was good, the mood relaxed and Robert was very generous with his knowledge and patient with his instruction. Altogether, a great way to spend the day and a terrific souvenir to take home. If you're thinking about it, do it . . . this course will enlighten you."
"A fantastic day, wood carving with Robert (and Craig) from Touchwood. I had never done any wood carving before and was a little apprehensive on arrival - however Robert was friendly and approachable and put me at ease very quickly. He patiently took me through each step, supporting me whenever needed. The course was a great introduction to wood carving and I would recommend to anyone interested, sign up and give it ago (I am also very proud of the spoon I created)"
