Furniture Making Workshops

Come for a day and make a stool or a whole weekend and take home a bench!

These workshops run concurrently – so if you’d like to book a day making a stool, you can book either day or book the whole weekend to make the bench

Perfect for absolute beginners.

Master some of the core aspects of furniture making, as you craft a simple, robust and beautiful 3-legged stool from cleft chestnut and seasoned hardwood seat. On this course you learn core skills and techniques of traditional furniture making, including using shavehorses, drawknives, and planes, and constructing solid joints with age old through and wedged round tenons.

For someone who wants to invest a little more time in creating a larger piece of furniture for the home – our tutor Tim will take you through how to make a beautiful bench over the weekend. You will learn core skills and techniques of traditional furniture making, and use the Japanese scorching technique of Shou Sugi Ban to take a recycled scaffold plank to a gorgeous finish. Leaving with a completed bench, without the need for nails.

One day workshop 9am to 5pm

These knife forging classes taught by Tom at the Green Wood Guild guide you through making your very own carving knife. Being able to take a rough bit of stock steel and turn it into a beautifully functioning edge tool is extremely satisfying, and very empowering!

On this one-day class you will learn how to make a ‘straight’ knife, the perfect wood carving tool used for everything from spoons to shrink pots, as well as being useful in many other larger projects. This class is suitable for people with no tool making experience. You will forge and sharpen your own blade, as well as carving the handle, and weaving a bark sheath to protect it, walking away with a beautiful new tool!
