4 of 5 Great Instruction, low quality production August 10, 2021
Reviewer: Bob Bender from Ventura, CA United States  
I purchased three DVDs of Nick Cowlishaw’s workshops. The instructional part is very good. Nick takes the right amount of time to explain and teach both the how and the why. Only very redundant pieces are cut out for time which I like. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the quality of both the video and the audio is low. The close ups could have been better to show Instructionally what is really happening in detail. I know that this was a family production and I am all for that, but for the price of the videos, I would expect a higher quality product. That said, I still give high marks for the experience and wisdom that Nick brings to the table.
