The atmosphere was great, a lot more than just a board making course but a social and educational experience.

Richard has been teaching this intro class since 2018 after realising that all the challenges of working with epoxy resin were bound to be frustrating aspiring makers around the world as much as they were for him. After realising that working with epoxy resin was actually quite easy once you knew a few simple tricks and the basic principles, he started inviting you to join him in the workshop to master the tricks of the trade for yourself.

Great class. Made a very nice end-grain chopping board, really exceeded my expectations in terms of product and range of techniques used. Richard is a very approachable teacher and clearly cares a lot about student outcomes. Plan to go back to do further projects under Richard's supervision.

This was an excellent introduction to resin. Richard was a very natural and welcoming teacher. It was great to spend the afternoon with such friendly and interesting people, who all had so many ideas and questions to share.

Awesome course i did enjoy alot.

Richard certainly knew what he was talking about. He gave us lots of tips and details of where we could purchase our own supplies. We were the second group to use their new workshop & in its present set up it would have been a tight squeeze if there had been more than 7 of us. Definitely recommend this course as a great taster as to what you can achieve with resin. Would like to receive details of more advanced/larger projects workshops

This class was just what we were looking for. It was pitched perfectly for people with little woodworking experience but Richard was great at putting everyone at ease and giving people the right instruction and direction. What was really great was that he let you use the machines right from the off, trusting you to learn by doing which made everything even more rewarding. He was also very invested in how happy you were with your finished product, making sure you went home with something you were proud of. My only suggestion would be for slightly more options in terms of materials from which to choose at the start of the class.

A great class with a great teacher. I haven't stepped foot in a workshop since school so was somewhat nervous to begin with but Richard's knowledge and passion for woodworking really makes you feel at ease (especially when handling equipment). The class size is small (around six) which allows for one-on-one time with each student and definitely makes for a better learning experience. Overall, it was a great hands on experience learning about the structure, strength and durability of wood with a beautiful chopping board at the end (and the satisfaction of knowing you made it with your own hands!) Will definitely be enrolling in another course!

Really enjoyed learning about the different grains of wood and using the tools in the workshop. Richard was very informative and certainly knows his stuff! I got to make my own serving board which was a present for my mum at Christmas, it now takes pride of place in her kitchen. Looking forward to trying the resin course.
