What our students say...

I will certainly book another course with Axminster

I was recommended to attend this course as I had no experience for 50 years of woodturning. I spent two days with an exceptional firm with exceptional staff and cannot recommend them highly enough. The administration was perfect, the tutor was polite, knowledgeable, approachable and friendly and I have to say that the visit was money well spent. I will certainly book another course with Axminster. If all businesses were run this way with the same type of staff the country would be booming.

My only criticism - it was all over too soon!

What a superb couple of days spent in the company of Nick Agar whilst being introduced to the field of woodturning texturing an colouring. Expert demonstration and explanation of techniques and tool use throughout with plenty of time for questions and answers and one to one guidance. The course is set at intermediate level but Nick tempered his instruction to meet the knowledge and experience of each student and made it such a memorable experience. Thanks Nick. Thanks also go to Colwin and Ben for the work they put in behind the scenes (and of course for sorting out the all important elevenses and lunch). My only criticism - it was all over too soon!
