Fantastic class covering the basics of fabrication. Lots of foundational skills covered with the third day able to put these skills into practice working on an individual/personal project. Very knowledgeable and approachable tutor as well who’s very accomodating and patient. Highly recommended SquarePeg and this course! Will be looking at doing others very soon!
