Woodworking Courses

With the ever-growing interest in hand-tool woodworking, our woodworking courses ensure that new and seasoned woodworkers become fully conversant creative artisans in their own right. As a result, our training sessions, currently in Oxfordshire, provide the reliable and practical guidance once available only through traditional apprenticeships.



1-Day Saw and Plane Workshop. This course provides the information you need to understand how bench planes work and it will train you in the art of saw sharpening and saw setting.

2-Day Discovery Woodworking Course. Learn the essentials of sharpening tools, the basics of carving and shaping wood,  joinery layout procedures, joint making and other core skills by attending this course. This course costs £265.

6-Day Woodworking Course. We provide this workshop as a compressed version of the nine-day workshop. Included in the construction of this project are stock preparation for layout, dovetail joinery, how to install recessed hinges, developing round overs. This course costs £900.

9-Day Foundation Woodworking Course. In this foundational joinery workshop, you first build a dovetailed chisel tray followed by a traditional Shaker candle box, an arched wall shelf and an Oak Occasional Table. This course costs £1350.

Our 2-day class in March, September and November,  our 6-day class in April and our 9-day class in July are full.
