Bye Bye...

It is with some sadness that we have decided not to run York Wood Craft Courses in 2019. We all have full time "day jobs" which pay the bills and run York Wood Craft courses through passion and drive to share our knowledge with like minded folk. We feel we will not have enough time to ensure our course particpants get the very best..
