Course testimonials:

  • Jennifer said: Excellent practical course, experienced teacher. Thanks.

  • James said: The most enjoyable aspect of the course was bringing a worn, broken old chair back to great condition myself, but with the guidance of an expert always readily available.

  • David said: Ron Siebert has a wealth of knowledge and is able to impart this in a practical way during the sessions. I now feel that I not only have a better understanding of the basics of French Polishing, but am confident to undertake projects with a reasonable level of success.
