  • review rating 5  I've just discovered woodworking and wanted to go on a course to ignite my passion. I am so pleased I found Mark Cass/ Neon Saw. He is a fantastic teacher - so passionate, so knowledgeable and above all a lot of fun. I'm now hungry to build lots of wooden things.

  • review rating 5  A great course for beginners to learn the basics in a fun, relaxed environment. The space you do the course in is a fully working workshop and therefore an opportunity to use tools you normally wouldn't have access to are part of the experience. In a short space of time I had the chance to use everything from a chop saw, a band saw and a cordless drill to a jack plane and a bench hook (and was able to recall all of their names!). Mark had a great manner about him and was very happy for us to get stuck in and make mistakes, learning from them and pushing on through in the 3 hour course. A great course for beginners which I highly recommend

  • review rating 5  I just finished a six week course making a small cupboard and had a great time. The course was structured and paced really well, with each lesson focused around a specific part of the cupboard. I loved Mark's teaching style, the techniques were explained simply and he creates a really relaxed atmosphere. Like the other reviewers I will definitely be signing up for another course soon.

  • review rating 5  Can’t recommend Mark’s lessons enough! I recent took a single evening course on a Monday, as soon as I got home I booked onto a six week course to build a small cupboard starting the same week! Mark is a great teacher and has an endless amount of knowledge at his disposal. He had such a likeable and friendly approach and I hope to book onto another course soon! The classes are really fun and I can’t thank Mark enough, I had a great time!

  • review rating 5  I’ve now done 2 courses with Mark as an absolute beginner, making a lidded box (day) and small cupboard (6 week evening class). I can’t recall any better spent money than this in recent memory. Mark will teach you an array of skills using the vast amount of handheld & machine tools in the workshop, in a relaxed setting with patience and good humour chucked in on the side. And a nice cuppa from a snazzy kettle. You will not be disappointed!
