"Very good course. Focus was primarily on French polishing, which was what I wanted. Other finishing was explained, highlighting the similarities of application to French polishing. I learned a great deal, improving my limited knowledge of French polishing. Would definitely recommend and I'm hoping to enrol on future courses you offer. Well done. "
