“Well-organised 30-week course which helped me learn various woodworking skills. It has been one of the most intense 9 months in my life, from 8 till 8, 5½ days a week, but I enjoyed every minute.”

The Chippendale International School of Furniture in Scotland welcomes furniture students from South Korea.

We teach woodworking novices and those with some woodworking experience, entrepreneurs, career changers and hobbyists. All you need is a love of working with wood!

Founded in 1985 and based near Edinburgh in Scotland, the Chippendale School is the UK’s leading furniture school. We only give places to 24 students on each furniture course, ensuring excellent 1:1 tuition within a buzzing woodworking community.

Thomas Chippendale was the world’s most famous cabinet maker and his legacy lives on. At the Chippendale School, we aim to pass on his genius within a modern context.

You learn to master over 80 woodworking techniques on our intensive 9 month furniture courses, covering furniture design, furniture making, furniture restoration and cabinet making.

You learn the same skills here in 9 months as on many 3 year courses, saving you time and lost earnings. It’s hard work but you’ll have a lot of fun too!

  • An intensive, time-saving, comprehensive furniture course
