Feedback


Your delivery and sense of humour, added to your devilment, was entertaining, at least 90% of your audience were convinced it was all going to end in tears.

Keep up the good work, shame it’s so far to Pershore, my grandson, who was also there Monday, (and I) would be applying to train with you.

“Excellent demo tonight - I learnt loads of good tips in addition to the actual wood turning.    I'll look forward to your next visit”

    David Teal, Staffordshire & South Cheshire 2014


"You included lots of advice and interest to all levels of experience, I've been at it for 30 years and the chap I sat next to was at his first meeting and we were both interested and learning. Thank you

    John Owen, Red Rose 2014


"...thoroughly enjoyed your presentation - I thought it one of the best I've attended. After a life time in education I'm difficult to please - no such problem with yours!"

An excellent night

    Harry, Tudor Rose


this was a very entertaining evening. Audience participation was good and Mark was on good form in reacting to comments”

    Tudor Rose


“It was an altogether fascinating demonstration of something that few of us if any have had experience of and this, coupled with the easygoing rapport that is always a feature of Mark’s presentations made it a very enjoyable and thought-provoking evening. Thank you, Mark, do come again soon.”

    Avon & Bristol


“I found it an interesting demonstration, and it’s always nice to see something quite different and unusual being made, to be inspired by different techniques and possibilities.
