An intensive course focusing on a range of woodworking & joinery skills suitable for all including those with no previous experience.
Forming the foundation element for both our 47 week boatbuilding and furniture courses it forms the backbone of our college from which our boat builders develop.
Learning through practical exercises you will be instructed how to use a wide variety of hand tools, identify the different woods used in boatbuilding, recognise faults and flaws in timber, use adhesives correctly, recognise and use appropriate screws and fastenings and importantly select woods suitable for specific job.
By the end of the course, you will have produced your own mallet, oil stone box, spirit level, bollow plane, oar, grating and hardwood tool chest to take away with you.
On completion of this course many make the decision to progress on into the boatshed for the full 47 weeks.
The tutor is highly experienced and well respected and many students comment on how his style gives them to achieve a far higher standard, and more quickly, than they expected of themselves.
