"This is more than I had ever expected from a woodwork course. The fundamentals were well explained from a highly motivating and knowledgeable instructor - demystifying any preconception we had about woodwork. The venue was also well managed and found that the students that enrolled enthusiastic and engaged. I would highly recommend this to anyone I know"
