"Thank you for an inspirational week of green woodworking. It was a marvellous insight into a fascinating craft, patiently presented and professionally taught.
I would recommend this course to anyone, whether focused on the craft alone or the development of their own designs.
Thanks again for a great experience in a wonderful setting"

John Harding, Group Industrial Designer, Huntleigh Technology PLC


"Entering Sean`s workshop is going into a realm of all things wood, tools and craft. It is a true Aladdin’s cave of creativity with Sean the creative genie at its centre. He is a natural and talented teacher with the ability to encourage and support his students through a myriad of projects, from conception to completion, with humour and humility."
