Michael L reviewed: Wood Carving Workshop - One Day

"Fantastic wood working course. I learned so much today about the tools, wood composition and techniques. I was able to put it to practical use with a flower that everyone did and then a free style project. It was a small group setting which allowed for plenty of one on one instruction and help. I’d recommend this for any budding wood carving enthusiast. "

Carole reviewed: Rustic Stool Making Course, 2 days

"We thoroughly enjoyed this course. We started by choosing a log from which to make the legs for our stool and worked with a variety of hand tools to fashion the wood to the required size and shape. This was hard work at times. Having no previous knowledge of woodwork we are very proud of our finished items. Our course leader, John , taught us well and was helpful and friendly. Stanwick Lakes is lovely, staffed by great people who went out of their way to ensure we were happy."

Stanwick Lakes Art and Craft Courses responded:

"Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and shall pass your feedback onto the course tutor too. We do hope to see you here at Stanwick Lakes again soon. Best wishes, The Stanwick Lakes team."

Christine reviewed: Rustic Stool Making Course, 2 days

"Great tutor, personable and knowledgeable. More strenuous on the first day than we anticipated! Lots of chopping wood with an axe and draw blading! A great workout. Stools definitely rustic, but good, very robust. "

David Belton reviewed: Two-day Medieval Glass Painting Course

"This was a great course and I was very pleased with my piece of medieval painted glass. Jo the tutor was very helpful and very methodical in going through the process. All materials and tools were provided. The only downside (hence 4 stars) is that there were periods during both days where we had to wait for the glass to be fired and cool down and there was a lot of waiting around. I think the course could be restructured to include things like glass cutting and history into the waiting periods, to keep the attendees occupied and get full use of both days."

Stanwick Lakes Art and Craft Courses responded:

"Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your feedback. It is always helpful to know where we could improve to ensure our attendees get the best out of the workshop. We shall pass your feedback onto the course tutor to see if we can perhaps change the way things are done to try and eliminate the waiting around part. Best wishes, The Stanwick Lakes team."

Paul reviewed: Wood Carving Workshop - One Day

"Don’t get me wrong, this was a pleasurable day, very knowledgeable tutor and hands on, but would have liked a little more direction/training on which tool to use when and for what effect. Fine if you are an experienced woodworker, not great if you are a novice."
