I have a tendency to get a bit anxious before trying something new but I needn’t have worried. As soon as I arrived I was made to feel welcome and the work studio is second to none. The equipment is state of the art, the studio thoughtfully designed and laid out. I liked the fact that the hammering is carried out in a seperate room from the main workshop so the noise doesn’t impact others. I completed the bowl in a day thanks to the guidance of Doug, who was careful to explain each step in the process. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to my next project with Contemporary Metal.
