We will be learning at the Woodlab in Dartington, which is a fully equipped workshop with the necessary dust extraction for the machinery.
There will only be 6 places on this course, which means that you will have plenty of attention from the 2 tutors and access to all the machines needed!

This course is suitable for you if you are a confident beginner or have used hand tools in woodwork before.
If you have been on one of our carpentry courses, this course would be a great next step.

All materials are included and PPE (personal protective equipment) will be provided.

If you already have your own PPE ( dust mask, ear defenders), then please bring this along.

If you have any power tools of your own, you are welcome to bring them along and we will go over them and show you how to use them in a safe way.
