This was a fantastic workshop - the ottoman I made turned out beautifully. The workshop facilitator did a great job at managing everyone working at their own pace and providing expert advice on the best ways to approach different parts of the process. I have recommended this workshop to a number of friends - thank you for the great learning experience!

I had a fantastic time at this workshop and would highly recommend it to those interested in making their own little piece of furniture! The ottoman is a great size, the class was fun, the instructor knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Would love to do it again!
