Furniture Making Short Courses

Furniture Making Short Courses

Here at Rowden we offer a wide range of furniture making short courses designed to suit all abilities. From a simple weekend course, to a week or even a month, we have plenty to offer.

The Tool Basics course takes place over a weekend and teaches you how to sharpen woodworking hand tools. As well as covering the basics, these courses are partly bespoke so if there is something particular you would like to learn, then just let us know and we’ll try our hardest to accommodate you.

There is also a one-week intermediate course, for those with a little more experience. Or maybe a Box Making course takes your fancy. It’s a great way to get started – and you get to show off your finished piece to your nearest and dearest when you get home.

Full details of all our short courses, as well as a the six month and one year courses can be found here on our website. If you’d like any more information or have any questions, then drop us a line or call for a chat.
