Make a live-edge bench or table

South London

Dates:
June 1 - July 13
Cost: £275

Course details:

This course will run over six Monday evenings between 7 and 930pm and result in a beautiful bench or side-table fashioned from live-edge timber, using traditional green-woodworking techniques.

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

Then its yours to take home and sit on, look at, put things on – the choice is yours!

This course is a great stepping-stone to my more advanced chair-making courses. If you are interested in taking a combination of these courses I offer discounts for multiple bookings. Please contact me directly to discuss. Please note that this particular course will have a break week on Monday 22 June.

Course cost includes:

Basic materials are included, but there will be an additional charge for the bench- or table-top timber. This will vary depending on the size of piece you choose and tree species, but is likely to be £40-80. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the course sessions.

Please note that course bookings are non-refundable unless cancellations are made at least a month before the start date. Requests to change dates can sometimes be accommodated depending on the availability of places and at my discretion. Also, as this course is time-limited, if you miss a class you may need to come along to a catch-up session in order to complete your piece within the allotted dates. Please read my terms and conditions for details on my cancellation and catch-up policies.
