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

Develop your woodworking skills by using a range of tools to bring your skills to life by producing a fantastic piece of furniture that you can proudly say “I made that.”

Whether you are a complete novice or an aspiring artisan, this course will equip you with a solid foundation in basic furniture manufacture. You will:

  • Learn about different types of wood and what to select for projects.
  • Develop an understanding of a range of woodworking techniques.
  • Gain the confidence to use basic hand tools and woodworking equipment.

At the end of the course, you will take home a handcrafted display stand made from solid American black walnut and ash which you can proudly display in your own home.

NB: Spaces are limited to seven to ensure that attendees get lots of individual support.

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.

Gift vouchers are available but due to demand, a specific date must be booked to avoid disappointment.
