Learnt to make charcoal with John Shepard. Very knowledgeable chap. Definitely worth doing for your first introduction to charcoal making.
Excellent course, well explained with different practical methods used during the day. Very informative and worthwhile.
Lovely setting, lovely weather. Nice relaxed approach to teaching. All very nice and a wonderful contrast to everyday life :) Arthur was lovely too
An enjoyable and informative time in the company of good people, and in a delightful location
Loved it! I just need more spare time now, to make all the things I’d like to make. Please can you move closer to East Kent, so I don’t have to drive so far! Had a lovely welcome from Arthur each day and loved Beth’s cookies and cake. Loved the course and the weather was perfectly planned too! Thank you
I would like to thank Amanda, John & Mike for an excellent course & what a delightful way to spend a sunny summer day! It was an added bonus to have the apple pressing & juice to drink at lunch time. The theory of pruning was explained & demonstrated clearly & I now feel confident to tackle both winter & summer pruning. I hope u will continue to run these courses & I will certainly recommend them.
the course was brilliant and a million thanks to John. I had a great time and learned a lot. Very good tutor. Nice relaxed atmosphere with enough information to achieve the goals (How to make charcoal).
