Details:

Ideal for everyone with a hankering to ‘make’ rather than ‘assemble’ something in wood with traditional hand tools. This one day workshop is a great introduction if you lack time or commitment to take a longer course.

In this safe and friendly workshop, you will learn how to plan your work, where and how to buy suitable wood for use in making simple projects at home. You will use the tools you will need to build a basic kit and the day includes a demonstration on keeping your tools sharp.

Using easy to follow directions in this  ‘hands on’ practical day, you will learn how to measure and cut accurately, how to use a chisel to make a classic wood joint and how to use to a plane to make your wood smooth. You will drill the holes to glue and screw your work together.

Everyone works with a complete set of tools and makes their own project, under the guidance of an experienced tutor.

During the day you will make two ‘gallows style’ brackets and attach them with wood plugged screws to a 50cm shelf. This is fitted with simple hardware to hang and display your work.

This workshop is suitable for all ages. Small class size = plenty of attention. For those  aged between 10 and 18, an older guardian can accompany them on the course if required. Please contact us if you intend to do this.

All personal protection and use of tools and materials are included.
