Feedback on a previous class:
""I really enjoyed this course. Rick was a great teacher, a good balance of theory regarding the different types of wood, tools, paints etc and practical basic cuts. My project on the day was a carrot that allowed me to practice the cuts, an eco friendly carrot for Rudolph. I have a new craft that I found very relaxing and mindful. Highly recommended.""
