Great day.

I loved the day spent with the salvage sister. I have been “making things” for a while and was in doubt wether I would learn anything new. I was wrong! She taught me how to use new tools and how to be practical about the whole process. Charis is great, fun and always there to help. I am very proud of the bench I made there!

Brilliant experience at the pallet workshop. A high energy and very fun day - Charis is a great teacher and was always willing to offer advice and help when needed. I learnt a lot throughout the day and delighted with the furniture we got to take home - thank you!

What a great way to spend a day. We had already done the Beginners Power Tools Course earlier in the year, but wanted to increase our confidence and learn how to make something. (A couple of the other attendees were first timers, so no experience was necessary.) My daughter created a pallet garden chair/bench and I made a wooden garden planter. By the end of the day, I was quite happily using the chop saw, power drills and power screwdrivers. There was also circular saws and a reciprocating saw, but I didn't need to use these on my project. Charis is a great teacher and a real inspiration for women to get out and learn how to do this stuff. A bit weird for a mother/daughter day out perhaps, but we loved it.

As the venue was a well ventilated barn, with lots of space, we felt quite safe in terms of Covid etc.

An absolute must for learning about power tools!
Jan 2020
I did the part1 and part 2 powertools workshop last Saturday. It's great! Well organised, with a good understanding of safety throughout, informative at every stage and fun. Charis was a great tutor with masses of experience to enthusiastically share. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Beginners power tools.
Jan 2020
Loved this class. It was bought as a present for me by my boys. I had a great morning learning how to use different power tools. Charis knows her stuff, she was friendly patient and inclusive. I didn’t know any of the other participants but we all chatted and interacted well. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to use power tools with confidence. Looking into some of the other workshops that Charis offers.

Pallet furniture workshop
Jan 2020 • Solo
Such a fantastic experience with the lovely Charis. The small group of 5 were taught how to safely use a range of tools to take apart pallets and put them back together as an item of furniture that you chose to make. A great way to upcycle. We were guided and encouraged the whole day. I would highly recommend this learning experience. Great value for money. Thanks Salvage Sister x
