The course was brilliant. The teaching and demonstrations before carrying out the work ourselves were very clear. At each stage what was needed to be done was modelled by the instructor so that I was very confident to carry out the work even though I have never done any woodworking beforeMARIAN – 1ST CARPENTRY PILOT COURSE
