Passing on knowledge

Mike is a patient and inspiring teacher and enjoys passing on his knowledge and skills to others. We offer short courses in our pleasant rural surroundings for either individuals or small groups. These can cover anything from the basics of woodworking through to more complex aspects of cabinet making.

Students will get use of their own bench, tools and materials for the course project with max 3 people on group course so you get plenty of attention.  We also provide you with a sandwich lunch on both days along with tea, coffee and Jane’s worldbeating  home made cake!  All this for an inclusive fee of £325.

The beginners course will introduce basic joints and use of the tools by working through a simple project.  We’ll also talk about characteristics of wood and give advice on which tools to get you started in setting up your own workshop at home.

The intermediate course is an ideal follow on which will cover more progressive techniques needed to complete a course project which can be finished on the course or by taking it away with you.  We’ll also take a closer look at some of the workshop equipment including how to operate it safely.
