Course fee - £500, additional features charged at material cost.

Low Table

A three day course focusing on basic turning, joining and shaping. Chairs are made from local ash and oak inspired by a two hundred year old design, finished with a simple folk art design of the clients liking. These chairs look fantastic in the corner of a room or on a landing.

Course fee - £350 all inclusive.

Spinners Chair

A four or five day course, based on clients skills, level of finish and table design. The table is constructed using traditional haunched, mortise and tenon joints with tapered legs and a wax finish. Students will learn how to prepare their timber, use tools and construct the table under Paul's experienced supervision. Suitable for complete beginners but some knowledge is an advantage.

Course fee - £450 all inclusive.

Console Table

Held one week each month, Paul hosts woodworking classes in his shop at Wentwood. Ran in groups of up to three the classes run over three to five days and take pupils through the entire process of furniture construction.

Beginning with pieces of locally felled timber, the courses progress through timber processing, drafting, cutting, basic joinery, construction and finishing. The final product, materials, and provision of tools and safety equipment is included in the cost of the course as well as lunch each day. Collection or delivery of the finished piece is the responsibility of the student. Paul will gladly deliver within 10 miles of his shop!
