Wasn’t sure how a turning experience with a Mr Turner would turn out but it was great. I may even return for another go. Such an enjoyable relaxing experience in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere. Very highly recommended.

My partner and I had a great day! We have never experienced wood turning before and thoroughly enjoyed it. We left with great products and couldn’t believe what we achieved. Graham is a great teacher, thanks for the experience and hope to see you again.
