Tuition is structured to suit individuals with various levels of ability from having no previous woodworking experience, those with a basic understanding and a desire to improve, to the more capable wishing to hone their skills or learn something new.

Instruction is given in a relaxed and informal atmosphere where there will be no more than four participants per course to allow for maximum individual attention.


The courses are project led to enable learning through making; each being based around the aspects of ‘Tools, Timber and Technique’.

Through this approach there will be a combination of demonstration, instruction and discussion but principally it will be a practical ‘hands-on’ experience.

Each project will give an overview of woodworking based on the level of that particular course, allowing participants to move on to the next stage.

Additional ‘one-off’ special projects will be added to the course list in the future, so please check the News page or social media feeds to see what’s new.


There are drinks making facilities at the workshop for tea/coffee, biscuit/snack breaks and an on-site tearoom, run by Norbury Wharf Ltd, where we will be able to take lunch (included within the course fee unless otherwise stated). Toilets are adjacent to the cafe which is approximately 100 yards from the workshop.

Each workbench has a small lockable cupboard for the secure storage of personal belongings.

Free off road parking available.

Unfortunately, at this time, the courses are not suitable for individuals with physical/mobility difficulties that would preclude them from standing and working at a bench.

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are available to purchase for each of the individual courses and are a great way to give a special present to a special person. It will give them an experience that will keep on giving through the skills and knowledge they will gain. To purchase a voucher, please go to the course page of you choice.
