Did you know?

The first chairs known to historians were low to the ground, ornately carved, and reserved for royalty and members of the priesthood. During the Renaissance, chairs became lighter and more varied in style. As life became more social, chairs became more common in the home.

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%

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!
