• TESTIMONIALS •
You have a very special environment you have created that allows you to be both creative – which you naturally are – and to be where you want to be in this increasingly stressful world!! The standard and quality of the work that you teach and produce is exceptional, and certainly sets the bar for any aspiring novices such as myself.
Andrew, loved your work at the Claremont Wood Show. Having previously disliked both boxes and veneering, I am now a convert
your work is very impressive.keep the fire burning .i’m only 16 and i’m doing my technology coursework on jewellery boxes and yours is the 2nd best i’ve seen .good work
Thank you for an excellent weekend, I learnt an enormous amount and had a great time. Now Im off to the workshop too see how much I can remember…
Hi Andrew – enjoyed course and proud of my box!
Thank you for the wonderful box making course you ran in early March. It was a great learning experience.
Well, one day I would love to come back and learn how to make flute boxes. I managed to get a copy of your book on Amazon and it is beautiful and inspiring. Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.
Many thanks for an enjoyable weekend. A few more techniques to practise and I feel inspired to do some veneering and small box making … very many thanks.
Mr. Crawford: As a box maker myself I am very impressed with your work. I work primarily with solid wood, Koa mostly. In my opinion, your work is at a level of artistic expression far beyond slapping some miters joints together and installing hinges.
Explanations as to the ‘why’ of things drove the message home and got me thinking and even dreaming of new projects in my own workshop. While inspirational might seem like hyperbole, that was my experience
Just a quick note to thank you for your time last week. We both had a great time and learnt lots as always.
As I reflect on the experience; my time in the Shropshire hills and your shop will long be remembered as one of the highlights of my life. Thank you so much for your hospitality, the mentoring and the friendship fostered over those five days.
I really enjoyed the two days and learned a huge amount in a short space of time (as well as ending up with a nice box). Thanks again for a great weekend.
Once your new book comes out I will purchase it as , your flute case that was at the show, I thought was the best thing I have seen in a while. Any way keep up the good work pal.
Thomas and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Thomas is already halfway through his first solo box and doing a really good job. He says his first box is so much better than mine!
Thanks again for the course last week – I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and you’ve inspired me into a new hobby!
[smartHinge] – They are beautiful and will make any box better.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend with you in your workshop and certainly came away having picked up lots of useful tips and information, which I hope to put to good use in the future with my various projects.
As a box maker I am inspired and humbled by this beautiful work.
Thank you very much for the tuition last week; I really enjoyed the three days and your hospitality was first class. It has helped me enormously, not just in understanding the techniques involved but has also helped me plan my next stage of development.
