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

As a flute player (maker) and metal artist who has done a number of sculptural boxes/containers using woods and precious metals and gems, I truly appreciate your work – your attention to form, function and esthetic in all details is wonderful.

I am also delighted with the way the leather lining turned out it looks really plush.  Once again many thanks for a really enjoyable weekend and a very satisfactory result.

I write to thank you for your patience and attention during my stumbling progress towards making my first box. I learned much and now have to summon up the confidence to buy some equipment in order to replicate the result without your help.
