Course Feedback

“Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the introductory course. You have a great set-up and the course was conducted so professionally. I really appreciated the genuine interest Stuart and Arjuna took in helping me deliver two good looking items.” Simon

"I have done lots of DIY stuff with timber over the years, but I have never known the right way to do things. So I enrolled in the beginners course to get some proper skills and accepted the fact that I would probably get a bit bored sometimes. I didn’t. The course runs at a cracking pace and there is no down time. There was a great mix of skills and I learnt something every night, which surprised me. Putting together and running a course like that takes a lot of thought and planning". Scott, Marrickville

"My appreciation for all things wood has intensified tenfold. My first masterpieces. 24 hours of sweat, chipped nails and filing my skin off. Orders for coffee tables may have to go on back order. Thank you @heartwood_creative_woodworking for persevering with my shortcomings to the correct millimetre. I wish I paid more attention in Grandads shed". Kim (Instagram)

"Thank you very much for the fantastic woodwork course you just took me through. I very much enjoyed myself over the past 8 weeks and I'm so proud of the projects I was able to take home with me at the end. It's more than I was expecting to be able to build in 8 weeks! Camilla
