RATED EXCELLENT BY
IAN - 1-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
Simon, thank you very much for a really enjoyable day. I also learnt a hell of a lot, just hope that I remember some of it.
It was exactly what I had hoped for but even better. Great teaching and you accurately assessed my level and what I needed.
The trouble shooting on the bowl for the mounting options, order of work and actual turning challenges was particularly useful.
Honestly thought I was going to take yew chunks home, not a bowl.
CHRISTIAN - 2-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
Simon was really patient and friendly, judged my learning pace really well. Excellent lunch and kept well watered. I will be back to further my knowledge. Simon has a real passion that shines through! Came away with pieces of work I am really proud of and a thirst to develop further. Inspiring!
TOM - 2-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
Simon is a really nice guy, and did a good job of teaching me not only the basics of wood turning, but also what tools and equipment I should get as a beginner.
I highly recommend if your a beginner who's thinking about having a go at wood turning.
BEN - 1-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
A wonderful and inspiring day course! As an absolute beginner I learnt so much and came home with a magnificent bowl and other bits. A really warm and friendly couple, Simon’s teaching was well paced and Louise provided a great lunch and never ending cups of coffee. Cannot recommend too highly!
JANET - 1-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
Simon’s woodturning course was a surprise birthday present from my daughter, something I have always fancied trying. I was a complete beginner but with Simon’s guidance, patience and kindness I was pleased and surprised to come away with what I thought were three amazing pieces. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to try their hand at something new. Many thanks also to Louise for the very welcome refreshments throughout the day.
MARK - 1-DAY POTTERY WORKSHOP
A good day spent with Louise fun with throwing on the wheel and some slab work. Finished about 4 bits of work and Louise fired them and sent them by post to me a few weeks after the course. Had a nice lunch and both Louise and Simon were very helpful . A full day well spent.
BRIAN - 1-DAY WOODTURNING WORKSHOP
An excellent day's introduction to wood turning. Simon was a great tutor allowing me plenty of time on the lathe and stepping in when I needed support (quite often!). I've wanted to try wood turning for some time and couldn't have had a better introduction.
Louise kept us well watered and fed so, all in all, a very enjoyable day.
