“I really enjoyed it, learnt so much. Great to be taught by experienced tradesmen and learning tricks of the trade from him. Feel confident to leave the course and to skim and render to good standard. Would thoroughly recommend this course.”
Geoff Hodge

“Brilliant course, I really enjoyed it and learnt do much more than expected. Good atmosphere and environment to learn in, the teacher was excellent, always offering advice and helping. Would definitely recommend to anyone and I’m very keen to learn other things now. It has given me the confidence to go and try different skills. I’m very pleased that I did the course, its well worth the money.”
Adam Burt

“I have now attended two ‘Saturday Skills’ Courses this year and wanted to convey how much I have enjoyed these courses.
I attended the ‘Brick & Blockwork’ course where I found the demonstrations excellent and the atmosphere friendly. The help and support was both informative and encouraging.

This autumn I have attended the ‘Developing Pipework (Plumbing)’ course. This was a very enjoyable experience. Each student was able to tailor the course to their own requirements. The comprehensive discussions and demonstrations were excellent and as each student carried out their own exercises and small projects, Claude provided great support and feedback.

I’m looking forward to attending the ‘Bench Joinery’ Course next!”
Martyn Pennington
