About the Course

This short but intense course is run on a one to one basis, and takes place in my home-based workshop. It runs for six weeks and is part time, 2:00-5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

The course is set for the individual whether they be a total beginner or more advanced and will be totally focused on hand skills. If you are new to woodwork I will show you how to use hand tools , starting with planning a piece of wood straight and then moving on to cutting joint, such as mortise and tenons, lap joints, having joints and even dovetail joints. Once these have be mastered we will move on to a small project, such as the box in the student work photo.

For those who already have the above skills I can offer a more advance level of skills, such as veneering and laminating, once these skills are mastered we can then take on a project that will use these new skills.

Tools and tea are provided.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
