This course will introduce you to using the broader spectrum of workshop equipment. Using a range of power and machine tools, you’ll learn to construct a small oak table, designed around the traditional mortice and tenon frame construction.

As well as hand skills, you’ll learn to use equipment such as the electric hand-held router, biscuit jointer, chisel morticer and machine sander in the making of your piece. Every session combines teacher-led demonstrations with 1:1 tuition ensuring learners of all abilities are supported according to their individual needs.

We have extended the course to 8 weeks following on from previous course feedback.

This course will be led by Christina French  who trained in carpentry and bench joinery at the Building Crafts College in Stratford. She has been based at Blackhorse Workshop for the past three years and undertakes commissions for freestanding and fitted furniture using locally sourced timber.
