This 1-day session introduces you a range of wood-working tools and equipment, which you can then use to make your own kitchen chopping board.

You will be shown how to use a range of workshop machinery and equipment. Following a talk on different types and uses of hardwood, you’ll then be able to select your material from our in-house timber store, and design your very own chopping board. With support and guidance from the tutor, you’ll then use our workshop equipment to make your object – providing you with a beautiful personalised project to take home with you!

This session 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.

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.
