How will I be taught?

By one to one tuition and in a group.

What do I need to bring with me?

If you have any carpentry tools of your own please bring them along, we do have a limited selection for students to use. Please do not buy anything until you have spoken to the tutor at the first session. You will need to provide your own wood but do not buy anything until you have attended the first session. For this project we will start with basic materials (softwood) that cost should not exceed £5.00.
