Sat/Sun 7th/8th Dec

More dates for 2020 can be found at together with details of other courses.

Lunch arrangements

From 1st November 2019

Lunch arrangements from the above date are as follows:-

Norbury Wharf Ltd operate a tearoom where you will be able to buy food to eat there or bring back to the workshop. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own lunch to eat within the workshop. Although there are no dedicated eating facilities at the workshop, each bench does have a stool to rest your legs.

These arrangements will give the option to take lunch in your own way and will particularly suit those who may wish to provide for their own specific dietary needs.


Workbench course

New Course

If you are after a good solid workbench for whatever purpose, this two day course could be just what you’ve been looking for.

The bench will be of a sturdy mortice and tenon construction to dimensions that suit your needs and could be with or without a vice.

Timber will be provided planed, ready for you to start making straight away, for an intensive but rewarding two days.

Not only will you have a great bench but can also say “I made it”

It can be dismantled for ease of transportation.
