I booked the introduction course for my husband as a Father's Day gift. He absolutely loved the experience! He was so proud of the hook he made and of the skills he learnt. He is already looking at booking the 1 day course.

I had an excellent day.
Having done some wood carving before I still needed to learn further techniques which I managed to pick up thanks to Pete the course tutor.
I would thoroughly recommend doing this course run by a knowledgeable and excellent tutor.
Thank you Pete.

Mike W - - #39237

A great experience with a helpful, personable and knowledgeable tutor in a pleasant setting.
The materials and equipment were of good quality and sufficient quantity that there were few occasions when anyone had to wait. My fellow students were very friendly which made for a very enjoyable couple of days. As a bonus, I ended up with a small pane of which I am disproportionately proud

Response from Stanwick Lakes art and craft courses:

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the course and glad that you feel proud of your creation!
