Testimonial

“The recent Shrink Boxes course was a great introduction to this technique, it is similar to spoon-making in that it is a skill which requires few tools and can be practiced at home using easily available timber.  A great mix of interesting people and expert tuition in a beautiful and relaxed setting.”

Dan attended Shrink Boxes 1 day course in June 2013
