Course Overview

Did you ever wonder how to create curved rails for chairs or doors? Or how roof beams are laminated or curved? Or ever wondered how to bend wood or simply which wood is better for one job than another?  We host and facilitate a variety of woodwork courses and classes offering diversity in approach and subject content that will inspire all comers whatever your skill level.

Our Beginners will explore an understanding of wood, gain an introduction to hand tools and their management, while engaging in a small and manageable project which will yield rewards. Our one and two day courses are designed for absolute beginners who are starting from scratch! We provide everything required.

Intermediate projects inspire a deeper confidence and understanding of material capabilities. This level provides an introduction to basic design while also introducing new techniques relative to each specific project work pursued.

We welcome Advanced participants who wish to explore specific topics of interest. Design development and construction solutions will be followed by sustainable progression of an agreed piece to satisfactory conclusion. If you are an Industrial Design or Furniture Design student, we would be pleased to assist in proto-type and practical thesis development.  Or maybe you are a Constuction Studies tutor who would like to gain additional bench skills. All are welcome.

Please check our woodwork courses page to see details of our short courses and classes. 

Maximum attendance on any workshop course is restricted to 8 persons.
