Cheshire Woodworking Courses

Do you appreciate wooden handcrafted furniture? Would you like to learn how to transform a piece of wood into a family heirloom?

I have a real passion for creating and teaching woodwork and have taught in child and adult education for 20 years. If you have a passion or interest in woodwork, my courses will give you the woodworking techniques necessary to bring your skills to life. Each course has been carefully designed to give you the confidence and knowledge to use and care for the tools required in handcrafting wood. Once confident, the courses focus on the hand crafting of your own piece of furniture. You will produce a fantastic piece of furniture that you can proudly say “I made that.” You will surprise yourself! It is so rewarding is to see how proud students are when they complete their piece.

Whether you are a complete novice or an aspiring artisan, there is a course for you.


Beginners courses are aimed at students who have no or little experience with woodworking tools to those who just need a good recap or polish up their skills. Intermediate courses require a good level of basic knowledge and skill. If you are unsure as to which course to choose, please do call Ciarán to discuss.

Junior courses aimed at (around) 9–16s are run in the holidays but also available as birthday parties or group bookings.

All courses are small in number and very hands on and you will be guided all the way as much or as little as needed to ensure your piece of furniture is something you will be very proud of.

Please read some reviews from past students.

I look forward to meeting you!
