    My daughter and I had a joint class with Terry in May 2019. It was excellent. He was patient, friendly and helpful and we each came away with a beautiful bowl

    I bought a one day wood turning class for my husband and I for his birthday present and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Terry informed us at the beginning of the day we would come away with two bowls that would be high quality and this was definitely the case. We took turns on the lathe using different tools and techniques to craft our bowls from teak and cherry and love the results. Will definitely come back to the craft at some point in the future.

    My daughter and I took part in the one day bowl making course for two. It was a great introduction to the craft and a highly enjoyable day. Terry has expert knowledge and takes you through the process, stage by stage at the right pace in a relaxed and friendly way. Taking turns at each stage, by the end of the day we had bowls to be proud of, one in Ash and one Cherry, both finished to an impressively high standard. We highly recommend Terry’s class.

    It was a fun and informative day. Terry is clearly very knowledgeable about his subject and a good teacher. I ended up with a very nice bowl and I’m keen to have another go at wood turning in the future.

    I was given an introduction to wood turning for a Birthday present by my daughter. Thank you to Terry for such an interesting, challenging and fulfilling day, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and came away with two quite different and professional looking bowls (works of art) which are impressing all our friends. Terry is a massively experienced wood turner but still patient and thorough explaining all stages of the process including the necessary safety aspects working with a large and very impressive lathe. The bowls were totally our own work, but Terry made sure our work was up to spec by following our progress and offering gentle hints and tips as we worked. The day went so fast that I could do it all again.

    We had a brilliant day making bowls with Terry. Terry’s a great teacher and he really took time with us to make sure our bowls turned out beautifully. It was a wonderful experience, highly recommended!

    My partner and I took a wood turning class with Terry last Sunday and had an amazing time. At the beginning of the day, Terry told us we would come away two beautiful bowls and an understanding of how to turn wood safely – all while having a fun and relaxing day in the shop. I can attest that the aims of the day were all fully met and we are thoroughly enjoying how the bowls that we made turned out. I would highly recommend attending Terry’s class.

  8. David McNaughton

    A really great day, neither of us had any experience in wood turning but with Terry’s excellent and very patient coaching we were able to walk away with two beautiful bowls. Terry has the patience of a saint and is a great coach, I would recommend this course to anyone.

    I booked this class as a birthday present for my partner. We had no prior experience working with a lathe. We both had great time making a beautiful bowl each. Terry is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable, patient and attentive. He doesn’t only give the essential information about how to make a bowl, he also encourages you to customize it and make it your own. Overall, I highly suggest this class whether you are an enthusiast or just want to try something new.

    After having just bought my first lathe and with little experience in woodturning I was ready for some basic instructions when I found Terry’s homepage. – I couldn’t have made a better decision than to book this great one day workshop for two together with my friend from London.
    Terry is an excellent teacher, and gives you all of the information and shows you everything you need to be able to turn a small bowl safely and efficiently. Besides taking home a nice little mahagony bowl I have returned to my own lathe with a good basis for practicing the right things. – Thank you Terry for your kindness and for sharing your expertise!

    My partner and I had a brilliant day with Terry. The time simply flew by as we were just enjoying ourselves so much. Terry’s patience and good humour were both very much appreciated and we were astounded by the quality of the bowls we were able to produce – each one unique to our own preferences, right from type of wood, through to style and finishes. Terry has inspired us to try more wood turning.

  12. Dan & Henrietta

    My partner and I attended one of Terry’s classes and had a wonderful day. Terry is an excellent teacher and was extremely thorough in explaining to us how and why each process was done. He was very patient and gave us plenty of chance to practice and make our bowls better. The end product was brilliant and we can stop admiring our handiwork that have been given pride of place in our kitchen!

    We had a really lovely day and are very proud of our beautiful bowls.

    Terry clearly loves what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious. Booking was straightforward and the materials, tools and equipment were all top notch. Terry’s demonstrations and explanations were clear and unhurried, and he guided us through each step with patience and humour. We both particularly enjoyed the fact that he let us do absolutely everything ourselves (even when it must have been very frustrating not to leap in and help) and Terry’s wealth of knowledge about wood and woodworking. The two gorgeous cats were an unexpected bonus! Thank you Terry!

    I went with my son and we each made a bowl which we were really happy to show off to friends and family. Terry took the time through to explain exactly how to do each stage of making a bowl and enabling us to do every stage ourselves. This took all day to complete, but at no stage did Terry rush the process. The wood for each bowl was good quality hard wood, mine Oak, my sons Mahogany…but Terry gave us lots of choices for the wooden blank. We have never done anything like this before, but with Terry’s careful guidance/patience we both completed bowls which we were proud of. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

    Excellent day enjoyed by me and my girlfriend. Terry is a very good teacher, clear and concise, explaining exactly why and how to carry out each task and how to do so safely. Both of us had a most rewarding experience and came away with bowls to be proud of. Highly recommended

  16. Ray Coulthard

    We had a great day with Terry. He is very patient, knowledgeable and thorough. Instructs you for each step but then steps back and let’s you do it so the beautiful finished bowl you walk away with is entirely your own work. Such a satisfying process. Very proud of my bowl!! Would really recommend it. Thanks Terry

    My friend and I had such an enjoyable time on this course. Terry is a knowledgeable, personable and patient tutor. With great skill he guided us both through the process of turning bowls we were proud of. Learning in a pair allowed us both not only to gain hands-on experience, but also to observe each other. We felt this was highly beneficial in learning the craft. Thank you again Terry. Highly recommended!

  18. James

    I have now been on this class twice, once with my father for his Christmas present and just again now with my partner. Both classes have been amazing and on both occasions the two of us came away with an amazing bowl. I went back because I had so much fun learning how to turn a bowl after spending way too much of my time on YouTube watching others make various projects. I would highly recommend this class as Terry is very professional and takes as much time needed to explain clearly each stage and the various reasons for each step aswell as steering you clear of making any mistakes. He is very polite and a calm teacher.

    Thanks for both sessions I am sure I will be back soon for more lessons.
