A most enriching experience!
I spent a fabulous week at the Axminster Tools training centre making a Windsor chair, although I am a keen woodworker, I learnt so much more on this course and was able to use tools of the highest quality and have tuition in their use. The tutors were excellent and extremely patient and helpful, not at all like being in an educational situation. I can highly recommend this course and the education centre, a most enriching experience.Roger T, Windsor Chair Course
Very pleased with the day
Attended this sharpening course with five other students! All had various tools to sharpen. Jason provided excellent tuition. Gave tuition on the various ways to sharpen tools. Lots of tips and tricks to obtain a sharp edge. Came away with my tools well sharpened. Very pleased with the day. Thanks to the Skill Centre staff for looking after us.Harold R, Tool Sharpening Training
