Brothers Ed and Vincent had a combined lesson with their Craft Course vouchers. Both were very enthusiastic and had a good day turning - here is how they got on! Both were chuffed to bits with their efforts!
Graham had booked in well in advance for his lesson to fit in with a short stay at a local caravan site close to the New Forest, and about 5 mins from my workshop - unfortunately, this second spell of snow put paid to that plan and the site was closed for a couple of days! Not to be put off though, Graham travelled down by car to attend and this is what he had to say about the experience: - I've recently attended a very informative wood turning course with Andy at his place
Mike came for a lesson with his daughter a couple of weeks ago and decided that he would like to have another go! As he lives in Ringwood about 15 mins drive from me this was easily arranged and it was good to see how he had taken in all the information from his first lesson! Here is how Mike got on..............
Alistair was another re-scheduled visit because of the snow in early March. He had a long journey from London by train travelling to Salisbury Station and then on by taxi to Fordingbridge - he does not need a car in London! As he is a school teacher his two visits were oranised for two conscutive Saturdays to 'fit in with his day job' - we try to fit in with everyone and as he was booked in for a course in furniture making on a tradle lathe in April it was a bit of a squee

We all decided that their journey from Dorchester was never going to happen and rebooked for 16th March - little did we know at the time that there was going to be a return of the 'white stuff' forcast again, but no where near as bad as the first one! As Andy is a vegetarian, Lin went along with him and lunch was a v
Mike Scott and his daughter booked for a lesson on Friday, being a 'local lad' from Ringwood it was not that far for them to travel! Both did well on their first attempt at turning and it has encouraged him to carry on the art buying his own lathe in the very near future! Here is how they got on, on the day
Martine took the first message by email - from Kate Moss and made the most of the similarity of the name with the model as you do! Well, after speaking to her and booked her in for a lesson I realised it was not the same one! Kate arrived on the Wednesday and quickly told me what she wanted to achieve from the lesson, so we started on spindle turning and control of the tools which she handled well. Kate had learnt a bit about turning with her Dad previously and had inherit
