Craft Evening Class: Introduction To Woodworking- September 2024

This course offers an excellent introduction to woodworking techniques, starting from the basics and progressing towards constructing your own woodwork projects.                                                                                                  

Term-time evening class study

  • Students progress at own pace
  • Workshops on woodworking – basic joints and assembly techniques for timber components

Delivered by our skilled tutors, the course will be run from our large and well-equipped woodworking department, where you will receive guidance in the safe and appropriate use of hand tools, the selection and use of various timbers and have an introduction to the use of power tools.
