September 17 - October 22
Cost: £310

Course details:

This course will run over six Tuesday evenings between 7 and 930pm and result in a beautiful handmade bench or side-table fashioned from live-edge timber.

You’ll learn the process of crafting the legs and undercarriage of the bench from green ash using traditional hand tools such as the froe, axe, drawknife and spokeshave. You’ll then smooth off the top and sides of the bench using primarily hand planes, before being taken through the process of assembling the piece using traditional joinery techniques.

After some finishing work, it's then yours to take home and sit on, look at, put things on – the choice is yours!

Course cost includes:

Basic materials and all tools are supplied, but there will be an additional charge for timber for you bench or table top. This will vary in price depending on the size of piece you choose to make and tree species, but is likely to be £50-150.

Please note that course bookings are non-refundable unless cancellations are made at least 40 days before the start date. Requests to change dates can sometimes be made depending on availability of places. Read my full terms and conditions for details.
