I want to thank you again for the good teaching and the practical information. I almost learned more in those two days than I did here in Belgium in a whole year.
Herman V, Belgium

I’m just back home after a wonderful day out at the Festival Hall. I took my 18 year old daughter Rachel, the singer, and we both enjoyed the music very much. What a gifted artist you are, to play so beautifully and to make such fabulous boxes. When the piccolo box is ready, will you play your flute for me when I come and collect the box?

Hannah M, UK

It really was a great pleasure to have some insight into your world of box making and learn to appreciate the skills, experience and craftsmanship that you bring to the subject.

Thanks, Andrew – it was a very interesting group with great banter and I don’t think we minded about the bit of work to do back home. The snow certainly added to the fun, and the delays, but it helped to make a very memorable and worthwhile five days

Dave W, UK

Thank you for … a great weekend. I certainly learnt new skills …

Colum L, UK

I had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and if there is one thing I have learned about your methods Is that everything is in the detail and by yesterday evening the results of this were beginning to come alive.

last week did a 5 day one to one course with Andrew and had a fanatic time. Very good teacher, and lovely company.

Many thanks for your tuition on the course – I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it has rekindled my desire to get back into my own workshop.
