Just a few of the courses we offer

  • It has always been my belief that almost anyone can learn anything as long as the information is delivered with care and consideration of the student. The difference between doing a course and watching a video on YouTube is like reading about a fine meal in a review and actually eating one in the restaurant. One tempts your eyes the other satisfies your mind. In my courses people see technology, creativity and knowledge in action but more importantly they are empowered by experiencing it first-hand.

    The greatest reward for me is seeing the glow on the face of a student when the cloak of confusion is lifted. It’s incredibly satisfying to see someone go from digital zero to digital hero … from technologically challenged to tech savvy!

  • I was given a pocket knife at the age of 5 and have been a woodworker ever since. I love the unbroken link with ancient traditions, and the knowledge and understanding of wood as a material. It is as valid today as it was millennia ago. I started teaching because I wanted to help provide an avenue for all those enthusiastic learners unable to commit to formal training. I love to see the transformation taking place through the process of learning, adopting and transferring skills and knowledge. All credit goes to the learner!

    The course is very hands-on and intensive. Students get a chance to demystify tools, and tune and sharpen design construction and machine processes. They have a chance to get professional consultation on any relevant topic and at the end of the course they walk away with a beautiful object made by hand. There is nothing like real time, real life, real experience and learning in the company of real people!

  • I enjoy the interactions in class – sharing our passion for food and learning to create something from scratch. Students can ask me a range of questions and we can work through the answers together in a hands-on way.

    I teach my students how to cook to satisfy all the texture and plating of food for that ‘wow’ effect.
