It’s the time of year when many people begin to think about obtaining a new qualification or changing career.

If that’s you, and you’ve always fancied a future in fine furniture design and making, do remember that our final Early Bird offer ends at the end of April.

As in previous years, we do encourage prospective professional course students to get their applications in early as the course does become filled quickly.

We only have a maximum of 26 professional course students each year, with applicants ranging from school leavers to the retired.

We’re also an international school with, for example, our current intake coming from the UK, USA, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Poland, Australia and Iceland.

That eclectic mix of ages and nationalities is one of the reasons why the Chippendale school is so successful.

During the nine-month course, our students not only learn fine woodworking, but to share their love of design and making with like-minded people from around the world.

All you have to do is fully register with us by the end of April and we’ll knock £750 off your course fees.

Remember, you don’t need prior qualifications or woodworking experience to come to the Chippendale school.

What we are looking for is enthusiasm and a passion for quality craftsmanship.  If that sounds like you, what are you waiting for?
