thanks for the course, I’ve been genuinely chuffed with what I achieved.
I write mainly to thank you for an outstanding weekend course. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, was hugely inspired and learnt a great deal. I have already started implementing various ideas in my workshop!
I completed my box and found the weekend very helpful and informative. I hope to get up next year for a one to one.
Personally, I learned an awful lot from the detailed information and guidance you provided. It was so much better that reading and video “learning” processes.
… thanks again for a great couple of days – i really enjoyed spending time with you
Thanks for the course – totally brilliant. A very different way of working from that which I’ve done before, showing what is possible without traditional edge tools.
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the weekend – marvellous company and particularly good ‘tutoring’ with the just the right mix of information giving and experiential learning. And most importantly- Jane loves the box! Thanks again and I’ll be in touch for the week long session
Back in Australia now and almost settled enough to get the new workshop into action. It was wonderful to do the course and interact with you and the others. Very inspirational to spend time with a top craftsman.
Thanks again for a brilliant day!
I am still buzzing from the weeks course & the quality of the box I have made. This is of course is a reflection of your expert knowledge, skill & experience, I am truly delighted. The week has changed the direction of my life & I thank you warmly.
thanks for weekend it was very enjoyable! You are a patient and encouraging teacher as well as an exceptional box maker.
… the three days spent in your workshop were wonderful and exceeded my expectations.
[smartHinge] – from now on, these are the hinges I will be using wherever I can.
I particularly appreciated your teaching techniques where you walked the line between moving the activity forward while catering for the many questions and conversations that naturally come out of these sort of sessions. I know how hard it is to stay on track in these sort of situations and I thought you handled it brilliantly.
We just wanted to say what a lovely time we had across with you.
Andrew, first of all a big thankyou for a very enjoyable long weekend – certainly one of the best indulgences I’ve had for a long time and a most refreshing change from what I normally do for fun!
For the aspiring cellist to spend three days with Yo-Yo Ma would be something special, certainly. For an aspiring box maker to spend three days one-on-one with Andrew Crawford is similar. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to visit Andrew’s shop in Shropshire, and had such a great experience others might like to hear about it.
Thank you for your generosity in authoring “Decorative Boxes”. Artist/authors so often hold back so called ‘secrets’. The depth and detail was a gift for which I am most grateful.
Absolutely Beautiful Craftsmanship! Gorgeous!
[smartHinge] – Thank you for going to the trouble of designing and getting this wonderful hinge made. The hinge is easy to fit, unobtrusive, strong and good-looking. It is the first box hinge that I’ve not had to adjust or change in anyway.
