Saturday Workshops

I am running informal Saturday morning workshops between May and June this year, at the Multi-Skills Workshop in Polegate, East Sussex. Complete beginners and upwards welcome.

The Autumn schedule gives an idea of topics being covered, although topics are now usually covered one-to-one, due to mixed abillities.

Dates are provisionally May 6th, then each week, for a total of six sessions. Get in touch now if these workshops would appeal to you.


The idea is to host a small group (up to four people). One-to-one teaching of woodworking topics, plus practice and/or project time. You can always find something new to learn.

Topics could be anything you've seen me doing on YouTube, and quite possibly things you haven't. I encourage you to start, or bring in, your own project to work on.

The workshop is well equipped for general woodworking, with a number of benches, and there would be ample opportunity to progress your project or try techniques being taught.

The price is dependent on numbers, and cover the running costs of the workshops. I do require payment in advance, as a sign of commitment, of the maximum £240. Where four students sign up, the price drops to £210 and appropriate refunds will be made to those who have already paid.

I do need to book the workshop space in advance, so do register your interest as soon as you can, otherwise you may not get a space, or it may not even run. Booking now. Email me at mail@womadeod.co.uk

Previous projects made by students include cafe and coffee tables, firewood boxes, turned bowls, knives, coasters, fidget spinners, etc.

Some other ideas of what could be covered:


Shooting Boards - What are they? Making and Using


The Panel Gauge - Making & Using

How to Make an Inro Box

Tuning Hand Planes

Joints - Learn some of the basic, and not so basic, woodworking joints
How to Build a Maloof Style Rocker - Turning plans into reality
My Japanese Planing Board Plus - A simple and portable workbench

Refreshments
Participants are asked to bring whatever they may require. Tea and coffee are provided on a help yourself basis throughout the workshop.

Safety
All participants are required take responsibility for their own safety, and to sign registration forms agreeing to this. These can be seen here

Satisfaction
Should you feel, at any point during the workshop, that you are not happy, please tell me. If I can't do anything to improve the situation, then I will offer you at least a pro-rata refund for the time that remains.
