"This was my second time at The Great British Woodshop. I have made a garden planter and a coffee table and I am already planning my next session back! David is very experienced and welcoming, I can’t fault this experience and would definitely recommend!"

"David was very knowledgable, helpful and friendly. I had a great day and learned a lot. Overall I highly recommend and I will return for another day workshop!"

It was a great day that covered so much and I came away with the confidence to start making well designed and constructed pieces and a better understanding of the tools I have, but hadn't perhaps been using them to their best ability and functions. David's style of teaching is very relaxed, informative and respectful to everyone's abilities and fears. I'd definitely recommend this course to anyone and I'll be looking at doing more courses with David in the future.
