All the projects for our workshops and classes are designed for those with or without experience in woodwork or building. They are designed for you to learn skills as you build your project and to turn out fabulously so you take home something you will be totally proud of. We teach in ways that encourage you, develop your confidence to have a go yourself, demystify all things woodwork and generally make you feel more empowered in the ways of working wood and building things.
We offer project-based evening, 1 day and 2 day workshops where you will learn woodworking skills and how to use tools.
In our daytime and evening weekly classes you begin with our projects to give you a chance to learn basic woodworking skills. If you choose you can go on to build your own projects under the guidance of our skilled teachers.
Our workshops such as tiny house and pod timber framing, deck, chook house building are designed for complete beginners to those with more building experience. These workshops are totally hands-on. You will learn all the skills of using onsite tools and equipment, all the tricks of the trade brought to you by our carpenter tradeswomen, construction knowledge in a way that totally makes sense, and be part of building an awesome structure.
