Helen, I’ve been meaning to write to you for some time to thank you for your kindness and support towards my son. He really enjoyed the course and thought you are an excellent teacher and I can tell you were able to enthuse him about all things wood!


Please pass on my thanks to Sam too, he has a good blend of technical skills with an easy manner which made the course welcoming and informative.


Honestly thought you both create an environment for friendly but very challenging accelerated learning – a supreme feat.


Chris Schwarz suggested I invite Helen Welch to be interviewed for the Lost Art Press blog. “She is a “[bleep]ing badass,” he wrote. “A tool nerd. Funny and sharp as hell.”

I loved the joinery course. Wanted to say thank you again for teaching me some really useful skills and for making me fall in love with Japanese pull saws! As soon as I can save up for the next course I’ll be back
