In-person course
Del Lewis - - #35987

Had a good day learning a new skill. Philip is very knowledgeable and patient teacher. I was impressed with the pens considering I had no prior experience of wood turning

When I met Philip we got on really well, the course was very informative, and Philip helped me to hone my very limited turning skills, and he has given me so much more confidence in my own abilities and to carry on experimenting with my own equipment.

I would highly recommend this course it is informative and fun.

Thanks Duncan

I had a great day learning to turn and make pens. Phillip has a focused yet relaxed teaching style that more than demonstrates his immense knowledge and skill in turning.
It was a fun day making some beautiful items that I never thought I could make.
I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wishes to learn to wood turn.

Thank you for your kind words.
I try very hard to offer my students the best possible introduction to woodturning with the understanding that if I was starting with a new passion, This is what I would want.

I am really glad that you had a great time and I am sure you will continue to make some brilliant things in the future.

Excellent day. Very relaxed and practical.

Response from World of Woodcraft:

Hello George. Thank you for your kind words.
You were a fantastic student and we ended the session having completed some brilliant projects. I am really happy that our objectives of making a carving maul and 2 pens as well as gaining confidence, understanding, and enthusiasm for woodturning were achieved.

I am looking to create a new experience day aimed to continue the exploration into this craft and add to the creative possibilities you now have.
