Furniture Making Short Courses at Rowden

 Rowden: A place to learn

Here at Rowden Atelier, we run a number of one-week furniture making short courses throughout the year. These courses are designed to either be standalone, or to provide an introduction for those considering joining us for the longer one-year course. Examples of the courses available include Tool Sharpening, Box Making and Chair Making.
The classes are small and designed to fit around your level of ability – basic, intermediate or advanced. You will also get the chance to meet and chat with the students taking our longer Designer Maker course. And we provide all the tools and materials so all you need to do is show up and have some fun.
These courses do get booked up in advance so be sure to drop us a line in plenty of time to discuss availability.
