I learnt alot, I built an iconic designed chair, with added addition of storage and adjusted leg length for my height! I'm keen to make more stuff and feel so much more confident! Great venue, good amount of equipment, great teacher, good balance of support and independent learning. No waiting for equipment.

I bought this as a gift for my partner and he absolutely loved it. Andrew the teacher was incredibly knowledgable and patient and it was a thoroughly rewarding 2 day workshop. He come away feeling really inspired to work on projects at home. Thank you! Would definitely recommend

Great tutor, great bunch of fellow participants & came away with a very usable piece of furniture. Well recommended.
David - August 19th
The course was fantastic. You're guided through a lot in the 2 days by an expert in the field- from learning about basic woods, furniture styles and dimensions, to wood cutting and assembling a piece of furniture. Highly recommend!
Aga - May 22nd
It was a good beginners course. Could include more of a design element in it.
Lingnan - May 19th
Andrew was extremely patient and helpful in guiding me through my project (me being a total beginner). His know-how and experience really impressed me - I wish I can learn more from such courses in future!
Melanie - April 10th

Nick - September 6th
This was my first proper experience in woodworking and I really enjoyed it. The course is well organised and is very focused on practical work, which is exactly what I was looking for. Andrew is a very good and experienced teacher, who is helpful with any advice or guidance you need.
Shelly - May 21st
Andrew was the best! So knowledgeable and helpful! I didn’t think it would’ve been possible to learn all that I did in such a short space of time and couldn’t believe how well my chair turned out! This course has wet my appetite for woodworking and can’t wait to look at doing some projects at home!
Marcello - March 10th

Joe - March 9th
Great course led by a brilliant tutor, highly recommended
Jimmy - March 5th
I had a fantastic time, the course was briliant, Andrew was a great teacher, there were just 4 of us doing the course so felt really looked after. I learnt so much , and came away feeling confident to use all the tools i already have, which i realised i had been using wrong all these years lol. The course was perfect, in that it did not try to teach hundreds of things in the 2 days, but instead focused on basics, the use of tools, the importance and skills needed in measuring etc - and to top it off i came aware with a chair i built - and it looks great if i do say it myself.... i give the class 100%
