"I absolutely loved this course. It was fun, light and really concise. Steven was great at being patient and giving extra support when needed. He also helped to facilitate any requests we had to make our pieces stand out, and they did, the cabinets all looked amazing and individual to us. I did my course over 3 days with 4 others who I got to know over the days and we all kept in touch through wattsapp to discuss further developments with our cabinets. Overall I spent 3 days at the makers quarter having lots of laughs and came out with a beautiful handmade cabinet and 4 new friends. I would love to do more there in the future. "
