INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEE:
All materials, tutoring and tool use – there are no additional costs
HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:
All of our classes have a student:tutor ratio of 6:1. Most are mixed level and some are mixed discipline, which means you will likely be in a group of people all doing different projects. Friday evenings are the exception to the rule, as this is a Woodwork for Beginners – Level 1 only class.
Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.
Once you have started your Level 1 course, you will be given the option to keep your class space in order to take further courses.
