Josef and Grace’s expert knowledge and coaching in a relaxed workshop (with lots of laughs) made the process of creating the stool a great experience. At the end, I have a beautiful piece of useful furniture crafted with superior quality materials to go with my fond memories of the day. And I am very proud to say “I made that”. I thoroughly recommend this course.
I purchased the Stool making workshop for three family members for Father's Day. They absolutely enjoyed their day with Josef and Grace crafting their unique stools in Blue & Grae's beautiful workshop. They cherished and loved this experience and have not stopped raving about their time, not to mention their quality work of art they created! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a memorable and unique experience!
Josef and Grace have put together a wonderful workshop that takes you through leather and woodwork in a friendly and laid back environment. And you end up with a practical and brilliant looking stool that you can be proud of. I still use mine everyday. Highly recommend! It was a fun day.
