“Thoroughly enjoyable course, Jenny and Ali are both very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, as well as having a great sense of humour. The tools you will use are always kept sharp and are great quality as are the materials used for the two projects. I have subsequently used the knowledge and skills I acquired on this course with a lot of success in my own projects at home. If anyone wants to learn basic woodwork and joinery or improve existing skills and are thinking about this course then I highly recommend it, excellent fun from start to finish and well worth it.”
