Welcome to Dovetail Woodworking


Are you looking to cultivate that long held desire to be creative in wood or to expand your current abilities?


At Dovetail, woodworking courses have been designed for individuals with a range of experience. This includes the beginner - taking up woodwork for the first time, to those with a degree of know-how looking to move on to the next stage or improve their skills.


Hobbies provide a great opportunity to get away from the day to day and enjoy something that we really love. With work life being ‘always on’ it’s important to take time out and experience fun, stimulating activities that help us feel less stressed and more energised.
— Emma Kenny. Psychologist and writer


Leave the hectic world aside and immerse yourself in a traditional workshop environment - where you will have use of your own bench and vice, complete with classic woodworking tools.


Take pleasure in the smell and feel of ‘real’ wood and the joy of planing a long continuous shaving with a super sharp hand plane.


Britain is a nation of hobbyists - eccentric amateurs, talented part-timers, Pooterish potterers and dedicated autodidacts in every field of human endeavour.
— Stephen Fry. (The Ode Less Travelled)


So if you enjoy learning something new, why not turn that experience into a skill and feel the sense of achievement in crafting timber into a handsome object to take home.
