INTRODUCTORY COURSE

We run one-week Introductory courses several times a year. These short courses are run over a five-day period, Monday to Friday – and are very intensive – and a lot of fun! The course introduces students to a whole range of woodworking skills and techniques including:

• A general introduction to woodworking – Planing, Turning, Sawing and Sanding and the machines involved

• How to make;
a hardwood box with a wooden hinge
a small wooden upholstered stool
a turned bowl on the lathe
– all of which is for the student to take home at the end of the week

• An introduction to finishing

Our Introductory courses provide an opportunity for you to try your hand at woodworking and help you decide whether signing up for a Professional course is the right choice for you.

This course gives the student a real taste of what the learning environment is like at the school.

Students who complete the Introductory course and then sign up for the Professional course have the cost of the Introductory course fully-deducted from the Professional course fees.

For 2018, our last introductory course dates are:
17th to 21st December 2018  FULL

In 2019, our course dates are:

18th to 22nd March

24th to 28th June

16th to 20th September

16th to 20th December

We take a maximum of ten students onto each Introductory course and they are taught by the Principal, Anselm Fraser. If you would like to join us, please click on the button below to fill in the application form stating which of the above courses you would like to attend.
