Half-day Woodwork Taster Class in London

Walnut swing lid box made in a half day taster class at Tom Trimmins Woodwork London

About the Course

My half day 'taster' classes take place on Friday mornings 10am to 1pm. There are only two places in each class so you will receive detailed tuition and have any questions that come up answered in enough detail. You will be joined in the workshop by one other person. I'll guide you through one of my carefully designed set projects, which you can choose.

What you can make:

My favourite half day project is a swing-lid box in walnut or ash. A small tray is possible too, but a little more advanced. My other project choice is an open top toolbox, which is great for keeping your tools in at home and is suitable for slightly more advanced woodworkers. All the projects are finely proportioned and have subtle design details. They are made using an interesting mix of hand and machine tools and fine woods.


There is a booking calendar on my website so you can see availability and book a place. There is no need to book a place when ordering a gift voucher.

Please note that this course is only suitable for Adults (18 years +).

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

What's included in the price?

All the materials and use of tools you will need. Sometimes there is even coffee!
