2 for 1 puzzle making Monday is coming up!

Make an amazing Wood Puzzle & bring a friend for FREE for our course starting February 27, 2017 only.

Over six sessions, you will learn how to measure and cut accurately using a traditional brass backed hand saw, how to shape wood joints using a chisel and how to use a plane to smooth and form soft woods.

The classic joints you will learn how to make are the same principles that cabinet makers and joiners have been using for centuries. By learning how to select the most appropriate method of putting wood together, you can begin to use theses skills to build basic frameworks for projects in your home.

Andy Nicholl is a skilled carpenter and experienced tutor. He will help you gain confidence quickly even if you haven’t ever held a chisel.

The final project is a classic wood joint puzzle to take home and amaze your friends.

We have a one day willow basket making workshop coming up February 25. Join us for a Saturday of learning this classic craft with a contemporary flair.

Before the invention of the plastic bag most shopping was carried home in baskets, and in Britain willow was one of the main materials used to make them. If you have ever studied and admired work by a basket weaver, this is your chance to jump in and give your hands a treat.
