"An excellent day course, that provided a complete overview of Spray Painting with a good balance of progressive theory and practical application. David's extension knowledge and skill allows for the training to be delivered at an individual level, all practical skills were delivered with all safety considerations taught using first class equipment and materials. Overall a professionally delivered skills course, all you need to start spraying safety with plenty of tips and advice throughout the day, thanks. "

Ultimate Power tools - "A really good course, covering everything that you might need or want to know. I really recommend it. Fantastic. I'll be going back for some more as there is a great range of areas covered by the various courses."

Upholstery full day class - strip, pad and cover a dining chair - "As a lover of all things arts and crafts, I was very excited to find a woodwork company that offered day classes, rather than courses, relatively locally. The course I attended was run by David, who seems to be a master in pretty much everything and an all-round fascinating man. Nearly eight hours in the workshop flew by and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. What a workshop!!! There are many courses covering a wide variety of topics from plumbing to making a deck chair; I attended the full day upholstery class. In addition to coming home with a wonderfully revamped kitchen chair, I learnt so much from David, just chatting to him about woodwork and tools. The Great British Woodshop really is great. Fantastic in fact. I highly recommend them and in actual fact have booked on my next project!"
