  1. Hi
    I’m very interested in your classes to start in term two. I’m completely new to woodwork so would be a beginner. Could you please tell me how much it costs per term.
    Many thanks

  2. Hello.
    Could you tell me whether there are any more classes planned this year? I am a complete beginner.

    1. Hi Emma
      Thanks for your enquiry classes start up again next week for ten weeks. Unfortunately this term is full Term 4 starts 10th October i can put you on the reserve list.

  3. I work full time, what can you suggest to be able to access classes like these? Any weekend courses? I could probably make it to 6pm classes. I work in Sutherland. Any guidance appreciated. Kind regards Karren
