Jorg H reviewed: Porridge Bowl Making

"A fantastic day out. My second course with Tom who is very enthusiastic, teaches carving skills and wood working knowledge very well. I highly recommend Tom's courses to anyone who would like to try out green wood carving or advance their skills."

Jamie Hain reviewed: Blacksmithing (Forge your own knife)

"Where better to pick up basic blade smithing skills? Who better to teach you? Start here, trust me. I camped on-site my first night and took advantage of the great facilities. Was welcomed by Tom and the smell of coffee and fire. Put immediately at ease and before you know it, I had a piece of metal that resembled a blade! This experience flies by too fast, soak it in and enjoy it all. I’d be out there every weekend if I could. Tom’s knowledge of both metal and wood is inspiring. He sets you up with transferable techniques in a safe and fun experience, then encourages you to go home and take it further. I was gifted this for my birthday and was lucky enough to be joined by two like-minded guys, but this would be great for mate groups, parent/child pairs or anyone slightly interested in metal/blades and being outside. "

"Thank you for your kind words Jamie. They mean a lot. Tom"

"Excellent course, great fun, great setting and fab tuition. Tom is very knowledgeable, gives great encouragement and advice. I would thoroughly recommend this course to beginners or intermediate woodcarvers. I hope to be back for another course soon."

Wooden Tom responded:

"Glad your dad loves his kit. He can sip a cup of tea in the Spring sun from it when finished ?"
