Bought for partner, he loved it and built a chair. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
