If you would like to enjoy the peace that comes with learning and using traditional skills, then our woodwork and carpentry workshops will inspire you to build a new hobby into a life long passion.
Our selection of woodwork workshops include beginners carpentry, woodcarving, woodturning and furniture/cabinet-making. It doesn’t matter which one you take first, like learning the piano – you can learn the basics no matter what tune you play.
We have a wonderful group of carpentry tutors who are each respected craftspeople, teaching the same classic woodwork skills in their own style, and share their passion for woodcraft in a relaxing and inspiring manner.
During each of our practical workshops we introduce learners to basic hand tool skills – so you can discover the joy of working with beautifully made chisels, saws, planes, spoke-shaves and hand routers. We’ll also advise you on the best tools to purchase and how to take care of them so that they last several lifetimes.
Through the process of making your own project during each workshop, you will learn a classic set of techniques. These include constructing joints, dovetails and simple frames, which can then be used to build further projects at home such as bookcases, cupboards or tables.
If your knowledge of woodwork is a feint but fond memory of CDT or carpentry at school, you are in the right place. Beginners are offered plenty of help and more experienced students may work at their own pace. Our workshops are kept small and each class has a tutor and qualified assistant.
All personal protection, use of tools and materials are included. Learn more about each workshop by selecting details below.
