Your Opportunity to Join A UNIQUE CREATIVE ATELIER


Are you fed up with your job, do you want something more creative, more fullfilling. This is that opportunity for you to change your life. We have a small furniture making workshop and teaching workshop here in Shebbear in the beautiful countryside of Devon in England. We make world class furniture for our private clients, we also share that knowledge with a small group of fee paying students, not youngsters usually people who have done something before maybe to quite a high level but they come to us for a year to find something else, skill, quality, creativity. Most of the places on our one year fee paying course are reserved by students from all over the world sometimes up to two years ahead.
However due to a recent cancellation ( for personal reasons) we have a place for a student starting this year 2006. Because a deposit has already been paid I am able to offer a place to a suitable person who can start a course relatively soon. This is also going to save you Three Thousand pounds off our usual course fee.

This is a one year full time intensive course. We are looking for a person interested in learning about furniture making, not in a college but in a small professional workshop. If you are interested look at the work of past students on this site, most of whom never made anything in wood before coming here, look also at the the course brochure go to workshop course brochure if it all makes sense to you get in touch soon
