Course testimonials:

  • Marco said: 3 Stars

  • Fiona said: I loved the fact that people were able to join this course with no previous knowledge of working with wood. The skills were taught well and at a pace that we could follow. If we made a mistake, we were shown how we could fix it without feeling that we were being judged for having made the mistake in the first place. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in starting to work with wood in any way.

  • Alex said: Loved using various hand tools and power tools and learning how to use them correctly.
