  • Students Comments - Signed Designs - Weekend Woodwork Classes based in London.
    a workshop Tim Bidey February 2013 the course was wonderful Having gone on various art and craft courses in January I can safely say this was by far the best Not solely because I was able to take home such a beautiful finished product but because the level of teaching was so thorough that I also took away the skills and knowledge to continue developing the craft on my own It was actually a very therapeutic day and something about whiling away hours in a shed with tools made me realise that woodwork is definitely an art I want to do more of Thank you so much for your patience as a teacher and for instructing us with such detail Ione Rojas February 2013 I wanted to thank you for organising an excellent course and being such a good and patient teacher I thoroughly enjoyed the day and got from it more than I had anticipated Being just a group of two allowed for personal and close working and ensured a relaxed atmosphere The day was very well structured and paced and I liked the early emphasis on accurate measurement and marking allowing work to a far finer tolerance than I have previously used and with much better results I came away with much greater confidence and hopefully will be able to take on some more complex projects I would be interested to hear of further course that you may run Thanks for a great day John Bolton March 2013 An excellent well paced course that covers a variety wood working skills and tools Thoroughly enjoyed the two Saturdays and I came away with not only a nice looking coffee table but the confidence to tackle more projects in the future Ian is a patient teacher with plenty of tips on hand so that you get the most out of your time Would recommend to friends John W March 2013 I just wanted to say thank you very much for the course yesterday It was absolutely great and I can t wait until I can make something else You really helped to give me some confidence and I will make sure I send you a photo of anything I manage to create Sophie Consett April 2013 Just to say thanks so much for yesterday Pat loved the course and said you we re a great teacher He s very proud of his spice rack and has already put all our spices in it Simone Radcyffe April 2013 Thank you so much for such a hugely enjoyable course Your calm and patient explanations and demonstrations really seemed to make it all very easy and fun and your sense of humour and tea and biscuits kept us all relaxed I have been basking all week in the praise I have received mainly from my wife Charles Gibbs May 2013 I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks again for the planter box course on Sunday I found it so fulfilling and you delivered it in just the fashion that balances learning with a bit of fun thrown in As I said on leaving I am seriously considering the coffee table course you run but if you do get to putting together the router course then I would be interested in that too For now thanks again It was great fun Matt Butcher June 2013 I just wanted to say Thanks for the woodwork course I really enjoyed the experience Stuart Ross July 2013 Just wanted to mail you to say a Big Thank you for the course on Sunday You certainly do have a lot of patience You taught me a lot and I was able to leave with a lot more confidence not only in how to saw mark up etc but in using the drill and hammer as well Many thanksI look forward to booking another course David Spurling July 2013 I m conscious that we all dashed off very quickly last weekend so I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the last two sundays Just like last year I learnt a huge amount from you and am really quite proud of what I ve made and more importantly the skills and technqiues I learnt in such a short space of time I really enjoyed it even the 08 30 start Engene Grant July 2013 My table s still standing and my 4 year old is impressed I really enjoyed the course I think you are a great teacher knowledgeable patient calm good natured and see things from a learner s perspective which seems to be an uncommon characteristic from my 19 years of formal education Hiran Desilva August 2013 The course sounded too good to be true but I was impressed The course does effectively manage to take a total beginner in just two days through the whole process of making a coffee table It gives a comprehensive hands on experience of the different tools from the most basic hand tools to more heavy duty machinery Yes the course was labour intensive but I wouldn t have had it any other way with your delightful humour your admirable patience and not to forget the energy boosts from all the biscuits and coffee the table and I managed to make it through just fine I think the course is really well designed This course deserves a 10 10 Christine Kettaneh October 2013 I wanted to thank you again for your instruction on the woodworking course I have my feet propped up on my new coffee table as I write this it s still in one piece yes Before the class I had little experience working with my hands leaving out the odd job of hanging pictures or putting together IKEA furniture Not only did I enjoy the whole process finding it very therapeutic even but I came away with the knowledge that with the right tools and the knowledge of how to use them I could make just about anything out of wood that I wished I would only add that had the teacher not been so effective and personable I almost certainly would not feel as confident Dan Herron October 2013 Thank you so much for such a fun and informative afternoon Neither of us can believe what you managed to get us to achieve in such a short time Thank you so much we love our display boxes and would recommend your courses to anyone Look forward to hearing about any future courses Emily Trustram Eve November 2013 Bought the spice rack course for a friend as an Xmas present and it was the best money I ve ever spent She loved the course learnt a lot from it and was so excited about the whole thing The venue is lovely the tutor is really friendly encouraging and inspiring and I really would recommend these courses very highly Andreanna Dais January 2014 I just wanted to thank you for such an enjoyable class on Sunday I really felt I learnt a lot and it has made me want to do more woodwork I loved how we not only made something to be proud of but also learnt great basic skills we could apply to our own projects I was rather exhausted the next day I guess doing a course at 8 months pregnant is quite unusual Anna Mouser May 2014 Just wanted to thank you for a fantastic class on Sunday With a great mix of traditional techniques and tools as well as being shown and using more automated tools it was a great insight for me as a complete novice I felt great satisfaction at having brought away my display box after a challenging and rewarding initiation into the world of carpentry It was hard work and the class was well taught your patience was very much appreciated I will happily recommend it to complete first timers with a real interest in the craft as well as intermediates who want to learn good practice and technique in a workshop Thanks again and hope to be making a spice rack with you soon Margret Child May 2014 I really enjoyed the spice rack course which I received as a gift Ian is a fantastic teacher with a lot of patience and he helped the group to work to an extremely high standard A constant stream of beverages and biscuits were much appreciated Overall an excellent spice rack course Andrew Balham May 2014 Ian is a excellent teacher and learning woodworking techniques from him was a real pleasure As we got stuck in to having a go ourselves he was always ready with encouragement and advice pragmatic and perfectionist by turns making sure we were improving all the way I went on the course because I want to build things myself but had no idea where to start This course has absolutely provided that start and a good deal more besides Looking through a book of woodworking projects used to be a case of information overload but now it feels like a world of opportunities Leo Critchley May 2014 just a quick email to say thanks so much for the course over the last two Saturdays I had a great time and I m really pleased with the end product Richard Mott May 2014 Just a quick word to say that I very much enjoyed the coffee table course and that I really appreciate your patience and encouragement I got an awful lot out of the two sessions It was fast paced but that worked well in that it kept things moving and meant that we learned a lot in what is a relatively short space of time I ll definitely be attempting some of my own projects from here on in Matt McGinley May 2014 Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much I had enjoyed the woodworking course this last couple of weekends I m really surprised at how many new skills I managed to pick up in two short sessions I could easily have carried on all day You ve got an excellent set up there for teaching learning and I m really proud of what I managed to achieve so thank you You ll be pleased to know that the spice rack has pride of place in my kitchen and I m looking forward to the next project already Chris Haydon June 2014 Just wanted to say thanks and how much I enjoyed Sun afternoon Really nice bunch of lads to do it with guided by your generosity and good humour Hope to see again in the autumn Richard York June 2014 I have just finished the two day coffee table course and just wanted to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed it This course covered such a wide range of skills and techniques that I can now say I have the confidence and know how to get started on my own projects Ian is a fantastic teacher and has a wealth of knowledge and experience His patience and humour makes learning easy and enjoyable Would highly recommend these courses to anyone Thanks for a great couple of days Allan Townsend June 2014 I wanted to send you an email to let you know that I really enjoyed the course a few weeks back It s really given me the push I needed to get back in to woodworking I would highly recommend your course to my friends and in fact I have Paul Grizzell July 2014 I just wanted to drop you a thank you note for all your efforts over the last two weeks I had so much fun and it was worth every penny You are a very patient teacher one of the best I ve ever had I would definitely recommend it to whoever wants to try something a bit different for a bit of fun or if they want to learn the basics Aghil Ameripour September 2014 I wanted to say thank you for the excellent course over the last two Saturdays I found it just the right amount of hard work which made achieving the finished product so rewarding and also really enjoyable thanks to the very friendly and humorous atmosphere you created You are a very patient and understanding teacher and obviously have a real interest in giving people the skills they need to be able to carry on with the hobby on their own after the course has finished which I really appreciated Thank you also for pushing the time limit so that all three of us could come away with a product we were very satisfied with Alex Lord October 2014 A somewhat belated thank you for a great woodworking course I thoroughly enjoyed it It was good to know what one ought to be doing with wood and to be taught properly how to do it Truly inspiring David Brodie October 2014 Just wanted to thank you for all your patience when I came to the coffee table course last week Forget Strictly I spent all Saturday night viewing my coffee table I really enjoyed the course and your skills knowledge and patience made this possible Thanks once again and I hope to see you next year for the spice rack course Jean Hatamian November 2014 Having spent 16 hours making a coffee table which I never thought I would ever be able to do I am thrilled with the outcome Ian is a fantastic teacher imparting his woodwork knowledge with great clarity and patience The set up was fantastic a small shed set in the beautiful garden with all the tools you would ever need A great place to spend a Saturday Victoria Allard November 2014 Thanks so much for a lovely day yesterday We had such a great time learned loads and it was nice to do something completely unrelated to work Thrilled with my display box Lucy Makin November 2014 My husband Phil Buck attended a course with you last March that I bought him for his birthday He made a lovely coffee table which is still in our living room Your course inspired him hugely and he now has a very well equipped workshop in our cellar His main achievement so far has been to make a beautiful cabinet that our TV sits on top of Amy Fisher January 2015 How lovely to be able to go somewhere where I can reconnect with what it s like to use my hands to do something creative and leave with a new piece of small furniture to take home Ian provides brilliant guidance and mentoring with just the right balance between leaving us to get on with it and stepping in when he recognises that a bit of support would be handy Everything is provided from the wood all of the tools and tea and biscuits I ve now completed two of the courses and will at some point go back to do the third I would highly recommend it Ben Gold February 2015 I can t praise Ian enough with what you learn about Woodworking I have taken all of Ian s courses starting with the Planter Box then worked my way through to the Coffee Table Ian was incredibly patient and knowledgeable so if you want start learning about woodworking or you just want to do something creative with your hands and get away from a TV screen then I think this should definitely be your first port of call When I posted my wares on Facebook I couldn t believe the response I got from friends with how impressed they were Lori Bellomo February 2015 Just to say thank you for a very enjoyable course I was surprised at the level of accuracy required to accomplish the task of making a display box I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the relaxed way you teach I would highly recommend your courses to any one interested in developing skills in woodwork Brian Mascaranas February 2015 I had a great time yesterday you re a fantastic teacher I thoroughly enjoyed my time at your home I d love to one day build a workshop similar to yours You successfully converted me I m even more excited about learning more about carpentry and joinery What was the college you advised me to look into I will definitely be back to do another course thank you so much Nathan McKenzie February 2015 I just wanted to say thank you to Ian for the day He s a very helpful and knowledgeable teacher able to teach valuable skills in a really relaxed unpressured environment I was bought it the day as a gift and really enjoyed it My girlfriend is pleased too because I ll be able to start making things to put around the house Jack Stanley April 2015 Ian thank you for the day As absolute beginners I am amazed with the number of skills and techniques which you managed to teach us during one afternoon This the best introduction into the world of woodworking I could hope for Equally importantly the day was fun without a single dull moment all thanks to your great and warm personality and teaching approach Really looking forward to learning more Alex Alex Olszowka May 2015 Just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed my coffee table course and was everything I wanted it to be The course was perfectly setup for the time frame to be suitable enough to learn a lot of the key basics but also some more advanced wood working skills It s given me the desire to continue this further and I m really looking forward to starting my first carpentry project Ian made the 2 days very enjoyable relaxed and I loved his workshop very jealous I was very proud taking home my coffee table at the end of the course
