Courses for Autumn & Winter 16/ 17

Please find below the courses we are offering over the next few months.

Each course includes a month's membership and all the materials you need (seasoned English Oak or Ash timber, glues, screws, sandpaper and oils). Any profit will go back to supporting the social program of the club.

Tell your friends! Book your place and get making! Buy someone a productive day in the workshop for Christmas!

Courses are for beginners and experienced alike, and cover basic woodwork through making an object. They include a detailed introduction into our workshop tools, the design process and how to actually make something. The courses are reasonably informal and are limited to 6 people per tutor.  At the end of the course you can take home the product of your labours.

PS. Please note the picture above is of an unfinished stool!!
