“Thank you Danny for a great week in the woods building my chair. I went from Monday when I thought I’d never get the hang of the lathe to pride with the reaction from my wife and daughter when I got home this evening. I can’t wait to do another course. You showed great patience this week and your teaching style of show, encourage and praise works very well. The endless cups of tea and magnificent lunches were gratefully accepted.”

“ I started the chair making course with no knowledge of wood… Danny is a great teacher. He is able to inspire, help create and offer encouragement. I have loved the whole process and have now purchased some tools to use in my own time” – Ella

“Danny’s green woodworking course has been even more enjoyable than I could hope for. Danny is a great teacher – he is there to help, instruct and oversee whenever needed. I couldn’t recommend it more!! It has been a revelation to make something so beautiful, strong, and very comfy ” – Carlos
“A great week and a fantastic finished product” – Rhys
“The week has been wonderful-a journey and an adventure. Danny and Jesse provided a mix of discipline and fun and their obvious expertise made it possible to experiment in the knowledge that they could always rescue us. Many thanks for the experience – and of course, the chair!” – Kenneth
“A great five days. The processes were clearly described and effectively demonstrated with clear, helpful and supportive instruction. Danny achieved a good balance of humour and seriousness to create a week of great enjoyment in a beautiful environment.”– Gavin
“It has been a fantastic week with a deep learning curve. Danny and Jesse both are easy to understand and adapted to our needs without a problem. I look forward to sitting on my chair!!” – Andrew
