All courses are held at my woodland workshop in the beautiful Herefordshire hills just outside Bromyard. The workshop is completely secluded in a woodland that overlooks the Malverns, you can immerse yourself in the task at hand, enjoy open fire cooking and wake up with the birds singing. We have cabins, benders, camping pitches and a yurt available to stay in, all built into the woodland around the workshop. Please see here for accommodation information.

All tools and materials will be provided, tuition will usually run from around 9.30am to 5pm with plenty of tea and coffee throughout the day. 

Breakfast of porridge, muesli, fruit or toast and eggs is self service, and a simple vegetarian lunch will be provided.

The evening meal is not included in the course fee as some people choose to stay off site, so we usually all put into a kitty, and course members take it in turn to cook their favorite meal. If you don't fancy cooking there is always the washing up to help with!
