This hands-on woodworking course has been designed for budding designer/makers or keen DIY enthusiasts who would like to gain the skills necessary to create their own furniture. A series of workshop activities will ensure that you complete the course with finished work and practical woodwork skills.
You learn the basic woodworking skills and gradually build up practical knowledge and confidence through workshop practice.
At the end you will have a finished piece of furniture to include in a portfolio and have gained the knowledge, experience and confidence to attempt basic furniture making projects of your own.
Each block of classes will focus on a different project allowing you to attend multiple blocks. Previous projects have included a chopping board and a small stool and you may be interested in visiting the tutors’ YouTube page and/or websites mattestleafurniture.weebly.com and Illingworthdesigns.co.uk.
Please note this course will not run during school holidays.
