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 Toby Poolman, our resident wood specialist technician. Toby trained as a furniture designer/maker and has designed and led workshops for all abilities.

We are ensuring limited numbers of people on site at all times and carrying out social distancing measures with additional cleaning in place. All of our teachers will receive training in our new rules and we will be making all attendees aware of how to safely take part at the workshop. We will not be providing refreshments so please bring your own soft drinks and/or snacks. If you have your own face covering please bring this with you. We will have some disposable masks should you need one. If you don’t feel well or need to self-isolate, please don’t come to the workshop but let us know as soon as possible and we can discuss options with you.
