Course Vouchers – or discount vouchers
If you’d like to buy a course voucher as a present for a friend or family member please contact me and I can arrange that for you. You’ll recieve a voucher code they can use to book a course at a date that suits. If a course is too expensive for a present then I can also do discount vouchers for £20 £30 or £40 that can be used to reduce the price of a course when booking, or to buy a spoon.
About the courses
Summer season courses are at The Woodyard on Cherrington Lane near Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Autumn and winter one day courses will be held in the yurt, with a woodburner, at Days Cottage in Brookthorpe on the A416 between Stroud and Gloucester.
I’ll be running the same course on Friday and Sunday as I know some people prefer week days and others weekends. There will be one or two courses for improvers in autumn and spring where we’ll look to develop your existing skills by carving an eating spoon and have a look at decoration techniques.
Cost of the course is £65 for the day. Tea, coffee and hot and cold water for drinks will be provided, as will biscuits and cake. Please being a packed lunch and your own flavourings (herbal teas etc) if you prefer.
Starts at 10am – please arrive from 9.30 to settle in and have a cuppa before we start.
Finishes at 4.30pm (but can overrun to 5pm at the latest).
All tools and timber provided.
