Fantastic 2-day course that left me inspired and feeling confident enough to build my own Enzo Mari furniture, and perhaps start on designs of my own. The course was thoroughly taught by Andrew who covered the basics from types of wood to tools. I really enjoyed the emphasis on quality and craft, and the small class size meant that we got to handle every aspect of the build. We all also had quite a few options in the projects we could choose to build.

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.

An excellent course that I highly recommend with the workshop being a clean and safe environment. Andrew is a highly skilled tutor who explained everything well. Lots of 1-2-1 help. I learnt so much in 2 days and made my own chair!

Great tutor, great bunch of fellow participants & came away with a very usable piece of furniture. Well recommended.
David - Aug 19, 2019
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!

It was a good beginners course. Could include more of a design element in it.
Lingnan - May 19, 2019
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!

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 21, 2018
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!

Great course led by a brilliant tutor, highly recommended
Jimmy - Mar 5, 2018
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%
