Simon Wake reviewed: Spoon carving at Walderchain Wood, Canterbury

"I would just like to say what a wonderful day I had at Walderchain Wood. Mark is a very knowledgeable person in every aspect of the spoon carving/whittling processes and knows what types of wood to be using for different applications. The small group of us were lucky enough to have a tour of the woodland areas explaining different aspects of keeping and maintaining the woods. The course itself was very in depth and Mark explained every aspect very clearly, going through how to use each tool efficiently and safely. I will be using the skills I learned in the future to make more spoons. I cannot recommend enough if you want to reconnect with nature and have a great day spoon carving. P.S Thanks Christina for a lovely lunch :)"

"We had such a lovely day at Walderchain Wood. The location was beautiful and Mark was an excellent teacher. He explained everything clearly, was attentive and the pace of the course was just right. We all managed to produce a spoon to be proud of. Thank you Cristina for the delicious lunch and the homemade oat milk. I would highly recommend this course."

"I cannot fault Mark's session in any way, an absolute pleasure from start to finish with a wonderful crescendo of Cristina's DELICIOUS lunch in the middle! Mark is an excellent teacher with a generous and easy manner and a gentle approach. His woodland is glorious and I was made to feel very at home. I came home with a spoon and a shopping list, thanks to Mark's incredibly useful follow-up email. I would definitely book again :-)"
