Course Venues

Courses will usually be held at either the Multi Skills Workshop, Polegate (just outside Eastbourne) or my own workshop (in Eastbourne), depending on availability and numbers.

Eastbourne is one of the top South Coast tourist towns in England, with plenty of things to see and do. London Gatwick airport is only about an hour away by either train or car. Accomodation is available from B&Bs through to 4 and 5 star hotels, for anyone looking to stay overnight.

Help / Advice

Please feel free to e-mail me for help or advice. Whilst I can't promise to assist in all cases, I will do my best.

Personal Tuition
I love to pass on my knowledge and experience, so wether you just want to learn how to prepare a halving joint or sharpen a chisel, or you want to build a cabinet or rocking chair with full instruction, drop me a line.
