Years ago when I first started workshop in Devon I would do weekend courses. I really enjoyed it; meeting lots of different people who came down for a lovely weekend in Devon. I had to stop these courses in the end because I was working during the week and then working all weekend and there is only so long you can keep that up. However now Ed Wild is working with us he’s offered to do some weekends to enable you guys and gals to get down here and have some fun.
Either bring your own tools or use ours, this is a weekend for you to learn how to sharpen and use a chisel. How to setup and use your own bench plane. To a degree you can tell us what you want to learn how to use we can show you how to sharpen the scraper or use a scraper plane how to setup and use a marking gauge or a block plane A Two day course £300 usually with only 2 or 3 people, a deposit of £100 is payable to secure a place with the balance due 7 days before the commencement of the course.
