Woodturning Courses Cumbria - Testimonials:
'The course has given me a sound grounding in the basics of turning, tools, processes and so much more which has given me the confidence and enthusiasm to start turning on my own...the course content was very comprehensive and where I had additional queries these were answered when I asked...I have enjoyed every minute of my time spent in your company, you are a real inspiration. I return to Saudi Arabia with an enthusiasm to put my new-found knowledge into use. I could not have been better taught or looked after by you or your wife; the refreshments and outstanding lunches were greatly appreciated. My sincere and heartfelt thanks to you both - you make a great team!'  ( RAF Wing Commander).

'Mr Harrison is one of life's great encouragers. I had a wonderful day and came away enthused and encouraged to get into woodturning.'

'Being a complete novice on arrival Harold gave me the confidence to go and purchase a wood lathe and start my new hobby. Nothing was any bother to him. He explained everything very clearly and with great knowledge. I personally cannot fault the course and I would not alter anything at all. I found the day with Harold one of the best I have ever had at learning a new subject and as for Mrs Harrison's sticky toffee pudding, absolutely brilliant.'

'A very good and informative course, very well worth the day out.'

'With the best workshop I have ever seen and patient teaching, and plenty of tea, the whole experience was first class and value for money'

'I felt that a good balance was reached between a fixed format going through the necessary skills, and customising the areas covered to address my particular issues.....An excellent course. I would recommend it without reservation.'

'Thank you so much for a most enjoyable and inspirational three days.....I am sure I will need to call upon your expert advice at some point - and probably sooner rather than later.'

'Many thanks for an excellent course. You answered all my problems and I picked up many useful tips.'

'May I thank you, once again, for an extremely enjoyable and informative course. You have struck the right balance between letting us novices try for ourselves and assisting, where necessary, to ensure that impressive trophies are taken home to be shown off to our friends and families. Your patient and friendly approach has done much to encourage and develop my interest in woodturning.'

'The comprehensive course notes are a real bonus and I will be referring to them regularly as I build up confidence. Thank you for a great course.'
