Here is what Grant, a recent participant, had to say about his experience:
I met Alan Williams briefly at a Woodworking show where he was demonstrating his bandsaw box techniques and I was instantly captivated watching a true master at work. So when I was told by his colleague Peter, that Alan ran some 3-day workshops teaching these techniques I couldn’t resist. I arrived for the workshop interested and keen to learn, but not really knowing what to expect. I left three days later feeling that I had just had the most wonderful experience imaginable.
The workshop setting, at Artisan’s on the Hill near Taree, is just perfect - a little slice of rural heaven. The (optional) live-in accommodation is clean and comfortable, and hosts Peter and Christine went out of their way to make me feel at home. The workshop itself is extremely well-structured and the pace “just right”. The mix of demonstration, question and answer, and hands-on doing meant that we applied what we learned straight away - in fact, we all left the workshop with three pieces of our own at varying stages of "finished". And with a limit of just six students, Alan was readily available to each of us when we needed an extra guiding hand. I cannot say enough about Alan’s teaching - he is a master craftsmen who clearly takes genuine pleasure in passing on his knowledge and skills, no matter your previous level of experience. He is a walking encyclopaedia of woodwork, and yet a humble and gracious man to the core. He really is a National Treasure. If you are thinking about attending one of Alan’s workshop, then stop thinking and just do it - you won’t regret it!
