"I had been give a two day course as a present and bought a day course for Andrew. Zoe is a gentle, thoughtful person who guides you through the different processes as you go along. She's always on hand for tips on how to achieve the best results and encourages you when you are doubtful in your ability.
After the first day I had carved a hedgehog on an end grain piece of wood that I have since used to block print fabric. Andrew carved a 3 D hedgehog which is sat in our lounge. I would thoroughly recommend this course, ensure you go armed with an idea of what you'd like to achieve. Zoe also sells chisels which is really useful as you can see what type of shape suits you best before committing to a purchase.
"I attended a one day private workshop with my son and his wife. Zoe was a great teacher, very attentive and knowledgeable, and it was impressive how much we could achieve and learn in just one day. We drove from London and stayed in the farmhouse for a couple of nights and it was a truly lovely stay. The location is beautiful and relaxing: a typical English countryside. Highly recommend it."
"I had never attempted wood carving before but with Zoe's encouragement and support I found that I could both carve and use a range of tools effectively. Really enjoyed the course and would recommend for both beginners and improvers."
