“The furniture design course is great. My confidence and skills in woodwork have soared already, and there’s a nice balance between hard physical work and learning.”

Fergus McCoss

The Chippendale School is attended by students aged 18 and older with a wide variety of different backgrounds. Many school leavers and post graduates come here and use it to build a career in woodworking and fine furniture-making.

Applicants to the school are often surprised to learn that experience in woodworking is not an absolute pre-requisite for entry into our full time furniture design and cabinet making course.

Enthusiasm and a passion for furniture making, however, are essential , and wanting to develop a lifetime interest in woodworking, furniture design and restoration. See the Chippendale School entry requirements.
