Rowden woodworking short courses

Rowden woodworking short courses

If you have ever fancied spending a few days – or even a few months – immersed in the world of woodworking, then Rowden could be the place for you. We run a series of short courses covering everything from the basics, such as how to sharpen your tools, to the more practical like box or chair making.

Located in the heart of the stunning Devon countryside, you might choose to live on site in a caravan – or even a tent. This not only means you have access to your bench out of hours, it  also enables you to truly experience the real Rowden. You will get to meet a whole host of students, from those on the short courses to those with us for the full Designer-Maker one-year experience.

We do get booked up in advance so be sure to give us a call or drop us an email to see what is available.
