I am hoping to run another six informal Saturday morning workshops starting in April 2018, at the Multi-Skills Workshop in Polegate, East Sussex. Complete beginners and upwards welcome.
The idea is to host a small group (up to five 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 new techniques.
Price is dependent on numbers as follows:
Three participants £300/person for six sessions,
Four participants £240/person for six sessions.
Payment in advance, as a sign of commitment, is required and this will be requested a fortnight before the course start date.
Place Share: If you would rather attend less than the six sessions, there may well be a chance of place sharing with someone else, so it's definitely worth getting in touch.
Under 16's are welcome, but should be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and
a donation of £2/session is requested to cover their refreshments.
Support companions are welcome to attend with participants, and a donation of £2/companion/session is requested to cover their refreshments.
Refreshments: Tea and coffee are provided on a help yourself basis.
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.
Places are limited and I need to book the workshop in advance, so please do register your interest as soon as possible, otherwise you may not get a space, or it may not even run. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Previous projects made by students include cafe and coffee tables, firewood boxes, turned bowls, knives, coasters, fidget spinners, bird boxes, tool chests, etc.
