"Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much I had enjoyed the woodworking course this last couple of weekends.
I'm really surprised at how many new skills I managed to pick up in two short sessions - I could easily have carried on all day! You've got an excellent set up
there for teaching / learning and I'm really proud of what I managed to achieve, so thank you.
You'll be pleased to know that the spice rack has pride of place in my kitchen - and I'm looking forward to the next project already!"
