Great course! Andrew is a very knowledgeable teacher and made the day fun and enjoyable. The pace was just right, and I personally got a lot out of the day. Andrew gave us some very useful expert tips and explained the right way to use each tool as well as the pros and cons of each and different assembly techniques. I received a lot of encouragement as I practiced using each tool and technique. We finished the day with a lovely tool tote which will be a great reminder of the fantastic day I had. I cannot wait to put what I learned into practice. Thank you once again and see you on another course soon. Cris

Really great workshop, packed full of tips and tricks. As a total beginner I gained a lot of confidence and went home with a finished wooden tool tote that I never would have even attempted on my own! I’m really excited to get the tools out now. My advice would be wear lots of warm layers as it’s quite cold in the workshop! Thanks for a really great workshop.

The course was really well planned and suited me and the other participants on the course. We had all had limited wood working experience and a project in mind. Andrew, the tutor, was engaging, funny and quietly encouraging. The workshop itself had the space and equipment that we needed and was in a really quiet location. I left the course with the confidence I was looking for to go off and get started on my own! Thank you Andrew and thank you London Sculpture Workshop!
