"The instruction that I received from Mr.Germain was priceless. Already being a cursory carver and knowing the basics, I learned how to capitalize on time management, presentation, and instruction to a vast array of tools and their purpose. He makes it look easy and definitely helped to build confidence in my abilities.

Paul offers a one on one that adjusted to my specific skill level. Learning the basics of art it self, I am now able to look at any object and replicate it without any intimidation.

The hospitality was top notch and I felt more like a family member being taught the techniques and secrets to a craft long ago mastered and passed down. I left feeling more confident ,knowledgeable and rounded, not only as student of carving , but in life in general. Thank you Paul and Robin, hope to see you again."
