One of my all time favourite weekends

Before this weekend I had zero experience of woodwork in any form. Bob and Steve are brilliant teachers and create a really relaxed and fun environment for everyone. They’ll give a demo and explanation of what you need to do and then give you the freedom to do it yourself, though they are always on hand to give tips and see how you are getting on.

Everything about the 2 day course was great, from the content to the teaching to the food. Bob and Steve’s passion for woodwork really comes across and I’d love to get onto another course soon.

Thanks Bob and Steve! - Jack - May 2019

I really enjoyed the stool making course with Turning Hare Woodcraft. Steve and Bob were both excellent and patient tutors too. Highly recommended. - Rory. June 2019

Thank you so much for some lovely memories of a happy day with patient teachers. Amazing that we came back with the same number of fingers as we left with! Gail M. June 2019

Thoroughly enjoyed this! Lovely people, great food, idyllic setting and great fun. Very satisfying going from a chunk of recently felled tree to a piece of furniture. Very therapeutic too - hardly thought about the outside world for the entirety of the weekend :-)

You won’t regret it!

What a weekend! A superb two days learning, crafting and finishing a unique piece of furniture (which you can actually sit on!).

Bob and Steve were not only personable and approachable, but had a sense of humour and an obvious enthusiasm for what the weekend held. A superb spread was put on for lunch both days, as well as having a biccie tin to hand should anyone need a little something!

Hugely recommended, great chaps, great company was had with likeminded people, I am confident that any Turning Hare woodcraft course would be a present like no other - so treat a loved one, or yourself! You won't regret it.

A great weekend and experience with lovely people and came away with my own stool that I had made with the guidance and help from enthusiastic and knowledgeable people - would recommend to anyone locally, down on holiday or as a fantastic gift idea

No blisters!

Great fun, great group of people, expert advice and great range of tools we learnt to use. Love my stool, can't believe I managed to make it in two days and with no blisters. Have been recommending this course to all my friends as a great break from everyday life in a lovely setting.

Challenge yourselves!

I think Frank, my husband thought I'd gone mad when I gave him a two day course to make a stool as a Christmas present! After two days spent with Steve and Bob, not forgetting Claire's delicious lunches, we are very proud of our rustic stools. Go and challenge yourselves, you'll have a great time!

Relaxing and enjoyable…

Bob and Steve are both so knowledgeable and such great teachers, that after a weekend that was thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable and never felt like work in the slightest, I'd both learnt a lot and made a stool that I am genuinely proud of. They really went the extra mile to make sure everyone on the course came out with a unique piece of furniture that they loved. Emily September 2017

Brilliant weekend. The table’s great, I love it! I couldn't stop touching it and looking at it the first few days! Thanks for both for being so generous with your time and knowledge and your wives for delicious food and catering for my allergies...can I have the walnut bread recipe?! Mary, July 2019
