Really fun, memorable day
Feb 2019 • Family
We had a day with Dick carving wood as a family for the first time. Our children, aged 8-13, were utterly absorbed and were quiet and busy throughout which meant we were able to get fully engrossed too. Dick is a patient and kind teacher with loads of experience and all the kit you could dream of. We'd love to do it again.

One Day course
Sep 2018 • Solo
Went on a one day Green Woodworking course. What a great day it was. Learnt new skills and made a couple of items and not an electric tool in sight :) . Very atmospheric place. Dick, the tutor, is a very interesting guy and gets you hands on right away. I just loved the day, so much so that I am going on another course next weekend.

Fantastic training

We spent yesterday being trained on the basics of use and maintenance of chainsaws. Clive, the trainer, is extremely knowledgable and very approachable. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Day Out
Oct 2017 • Friends
The Knife making course (15th/10th2017) was great fun and fully hands on. Couldn't have asked any more of Dick the Tutor, full of knowledge, friendly and a great guy all around.

Will defo be going back to do another course next year. Hard bit will be picking what course to do :)

A hidden gem!
Jun 2017 • Solo
As the title describes, this is a hidden gem tucked away in a a lovely tranquil location. There's not much the tutors don't know about wood! Went for the introduction to green wood working and came away with some lovely kitchen utensils. Definitely recommend!

A lovely day learning new skills with friendly people!
Apr 2017 • Solo
An idyllic setting, peaceful atmosphere and friendly informative instructor. Spent the day learning the basics of green woodcarving with the very knowledgeable, interesting and friendly Dick. I was by myself, but the other people taking part in the course were very like-minded and friendly; we were all there to have an enjoyable day learning new skills at a relaxed pace. I look forward to visiting again on another of the many courses offered, and can heartily recommend it.

A wonderful day learning new skills
Apr 2017 • Family
Dick was our tutor for the day and inspired every one of our group to produce a piece of woodwork of their choice. He had a wonderful way of getting us to learn skills quickly and without pressurising or being too fussed about doing things exactly 'right'. Expertly managed and a wonderfully happy day.

Spoon carving day
Feb 2017 • Solo
Lovely day spent carving a spoon from a chunk of wood. Very relaxed atmosphere, with great teaching from Dick, who is very knowledgeable. The location is very peaceful and off grid.
Lots of other fascinating courses on the programme, I certainly hope to go back.

SPoon, SPurtle and SPatula. Simple Pleasures !
Jun 2016 • Solo
Recommend thoroughly the pleasure of creating simple but useful objects from a chunk of wood cut by you from a felled tree trunk. Skilled and patient guidance from Dick Craig was always on hand. Had a great day in fantastic surroundings. Imagine the sense of pride when returning to the home kitchen with these implements. You will however, have to overcome the impatience of letting the wood dry for 2 weeks in a cool dry place before being able to demonstrate you culinary skills flipping eggs using your knife- edge spatula, or producing the worlds creamiest porridge with your thistle- topped SPurtle ! Will definitely be back.........I wanna long -bow!
