    I received a gift certificate from my wife for my birthday for a one 2 one session with Wayne, I have been spoon carving for a few years but wanted to improve my skills and carving ability. What can I say, I had a fantastic time receiving excellent tuition. Wayne was very friendly and helpful and his knowledge is brilliant. I would definitely be returning and doing other courses and highly recommend anyone to book with them.
