This school recently opened not far from where I live. I attended one of their ‘Free Friday’ classes and both learned a lot and enjoyed myself. The teacher has lots of enthusiasm and knowledge; and since he was a school teacher, he knows how to teach.
The environment is extra friendly and the equipment first rate. A lot of thought went into setting this place up, and they did all the work themselves.
I was there when they were getting ready for one of their guest instructors, and the students all seemed to be very happy to be there.
If you take a class from them you will be satisfied with the result- and San Marcos is a neat place to visit.
I recommend it.

Thanks Donna, I watched his video. It looks like a great concept and I wish him luck.

You might suggest that he join Lumberjocks and he might get some students from here.

They certainly don’t seem to be skimping on the equipment. I’d love to take their WIndsor chair course with Elia Bizzarri or the carving course from Mary May.

Donna, it’s very fortunate to have a place like that that is near your home. I hope that you enjoy it and learn a lot.

Blackie- I think it was on FaceBook, but I’m not sure. It is an ambitious undertaking and they have worked their butts off to get it started. I want them to succeed.
You could arrange to show some of your boxes there I’m sure. They want to get more wood artists to display their work for sale.
