"I can't recommend this course highly enough. David puts you at ease straight away and whatever your skill base I guarantee you will learn so much as well as coming out with an incredibly beautiful item for your home. A definite must for anyone with an interest in home décor, design or just a love of learning something new.."

"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!!!."
