The courses at Rowden continue to be intensive, and have the potential to be life changing. Students cover the how and why of using tools and techniques, but go far beyond this. Being at the bench at Rowden becomes a shift in thinking, about precision, quality, ones own capacity and the meaning of craftsmanship.
It remains a world-renowned fine furniture school and a bastion of the Arts & Crafts movement. The courses at Rowden have been honed over the preceding decades to challenge and empower its students, moving them from aspiring woodworkers to professional craftspeople. It continues to be a place of deep work, with attention given to furniture design and making and its students becoming cabinetmakers of the highest quality.
