Course Reviews

Andrew Donaldson

November 2012- Woodcraft School

I can thoroughly recommend this course. It is a beautiful location set in an old wood, John Rhyder is an excellent coach. He did not labour all of the details of the course in a boring way, but covered the essentials and instructed and advised as you were doing the work. You were expected to do a little homework each day to familiarise yourself with the next days tasks. The price was also very good. Some equipment is available but it is essential to provide your own protective clothing. Hot drinks are available all day (very welcome) and you bring your own lunch. Excellent coaching and a relaxed, practical, working course.
