THE LONDON SCHOOL OF FURNITURE MAKING: TASTER CLASSES

Furniture making courses in London. We run woodwork classes, for adult learners. Our woodwork short course is suitable for experienced students who want to deepen their knowledge. A series of introductory cabinet making lessons build into a comprehensive set of carpentry skills. We teach you how to use joinery to create a coffee table or a make a Japanese coffee table. You can learn how to make boxes and we have a workbench class too. We offer a steam bending class.

TASTER CLASSES

We run woodworking taster sessions so that you can see if you like us before committing to a longer course of lessons. Suitable for both the complete beginner or more experienced woodworker.

The session focuses on making one or two simple joints to get you used to using hand tools such as saws and chisels as well as measuring and marking equipment.

You will get a flavour of our teaching methods and discover if this woodworking stuff is for you.

The class is fast-paced and enjoyable but it is also challenging and full of technical information, so do not expect the class to be a walk in the park. Hard work is rarely this much fun.

We also have a range of Gift Cards including £55/£110 denominations which conveniently cover the cost of a Half or All-day class.


Planes & Planing Taster

New for 2020 is our Planing Taster Class, where you will make a little serving platter and along the way learn how to set up, adjust, sharpen and troubleshoot a Stanley/Record Bailey bench plane. If a Taster class isn't what you're looking for check out our three day Core Skills Planes & Planing class instead.
