Comments from previous courses

Q: What did you find most interesting over the three days?

A: “Informal discussions after examining individual pieces, hands on assessments. Learning about different woods and construction of pieces through the centuries. Delighted with all aspects of the course and would return to learn more, it is a far bigger subject than I thought.” ( Mr M.Barron, Angus)

Three days was the perfect length for the course, well done with all the effort and enthusiasm Jeremy.
