After much deliberation I have decided to give up the Vicmarc dealership to allow me to concetrate on my own work and the ever increasing demand on my Full Story...

I did the one day beginner's course with Andy in July 2014. It was a fantastic day, Andy is a superb teacher who can easily instill confidence into anyone. I found the course to be both extremely interesting and productive. Highly recommended to anyone wishing to take up woodturning.
