I had a great time with Ollie and Charl. Both of them are welcoming and friendly and made the lesson very enjoyable. They know a lot about woodwork and are happy to share their experiences with us. I would really recommend the lesson to anyone who would like to get some hands-on experience with wood and craft their own unique product.

Fantastic evening with the Dovedale Design Studio team. Informative, educational and great fun. Not only do you learn about their work, different woods, woodworking techniques etc. but you also come away with some great looking chopsticks! Loved it!

This was one of the best workshops we've been to and a really lovely evening. Our tutor was welcoming, encouraging and knowledgeable. We've left with good pair of chopsticks each and an interest in learning more about woodwork. We'll definitely be recommending this to our friends.

Absolutely brilliant course at Dovedale studios last night. This was my first ever Obby booking, and I really enjoyed it. Ollie and Charl were both friendly and interesting. Charl did the teaching, and he was patient, helpful and informative. I now know a lot more than I did before about types of wood, measuring properly, cutting, planing, insetting; and after this opportunity to learn and practise these, I feel confident to do a more advanced course next.

The evening was lots of fun and very instructive. I took home some beautiful chopsticks and a stand which I'd made. I would also now feel confident in using the tools and methods learnt. Would love to do more classes at Dovedale Design Studio.

Awesome experience. The guys at Dovedale bring such passion and creativity to what they do, and it's totally infectious. It's pretty rare in these days of 3D printers and mass production to find a young company that is so committed to a physical craft, to making beautiful things by hand. Getting a little insight into their world in the studio was the perfect antidote to working in the office and pushing numbers around on a screen. They create a really relaxed environment, and you come away having learned a lot and created something with your own two hands, something that connects you in a small way to a level of craftsmanship that is now far too rare and underappreciated. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
