“For the first time in my life (I am 62) I found a course that taught me the basics. As a girl, I was automatically excluded from woodwork and metal work. The tutors taught us how to approach the workspace, using a jig to make things more efficient, the tools, what they do, how to measure. All the automatic things that skilled people know and don’t think to explain.”

“I felt safe and cared for. I felt I was in the company of people who knew what they were doing. The tutor demonstrates, indicates what to watch out for and then lets us get on with it. The pace is paced and structured to that we can follow with confidence.”

“The tutors? What can I say? They are ‘the bees knees’! What I mean is the tone and pace works well. The use of drawings works well – they are clear and given at important points.”
