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
