Course details:

**This course is now full. A space has become available on my earlier one in September 2022. Details here if you're interested**

This course will run over six Tuesday evenings between 7 and 930pm and result in a beautiful handmade bench or side-table fashioned from live-edge timber.

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

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

Please note that although my workshop is COVID-secure and employs the necessary social distancing and other measures to ensure the safety of students, all course dates are subject to the prevailing virus regulations in force at the time. If changing government rules require courses to be postponed, I will work with the individual groups to ensure the course is delivered at the earliest opportunity.

Course cost includes:

Basic materials are included, but there will be an additional charge for the bench- or table-top timber. This will vary in price depending on the size of piece you choose and tree species, but is likely to be £50-150.

Please read my terms and conditions for details on cancellations and missed sessions.
