HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:
All of our weekly woodwork classes have a student:tutor ratio of 6:1. Most are mixed level, which means you will likely be in a group of people all doing different projects.
Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.
If you are a weekday or evening class member, when you are approaching the end of your Level 2 course you will be given the option to keep your class space in order to take further courses.
