Testimonials:

Ben

"Thank you for a fantastic morning. It was inspirational! Everything I have learnt from my reading so far has now come alive. I have been so enthused by your tutorship and guidance. Your unfailing encouragement eased my nerves from the start and throughout the morning. I am amazed at the sculpture I have achieved in such a short time. My husband bought me a dummy hammer and a wallet of chisels for my birthday in June. They were untouched until you gave me the confidence to have a go. I am now looking at the sculptured Heron you guided me to carve this morning. And I keep looking; with pride. Did I really achieve such a work of art? With your talented teaching and patience I did!" 

 

Thank you so much
