I did the one day course learning to make a small copper bowl, it was a fantastic new thing to learn, the class was intimate and very well led, guided step by step. At the end of the class I felt confident with many of the new skils and highly recommend this well facilitated and fun workshop. I also love the little piece I made, it was very satisfying!

Great day, small group, flexible and very knowledgeable instructors. With the small group and great instructors it was easy enough for them to challenge to more capable participants. A great, well equipped workshop with friendly staff and atmosphere. Thanks guys
