What do I learn?
This course will provide an opportunity for you to develop skills and understanding in fine furniture making. Class sizes will be small and learning is centred on practical project work in our brand new workshop. You will have the opportunity to make a number of pieces on this course including a small box and a cabinet . The course fees will cover all materials. Complementary studies will include timber technology, finishing and CAD.
What do I gain?
Experienced tutors will guide you in the use of hand tools, portable power tools and wood machining to provide the skills and confidence to find employment or pursue your own creative goals. The emphasis of this course will be high quality craft and relevant industry skills.
What do I need?
We expect applicants to bring a wide variety of skills and experiences to the course but the most important qualification is a passion for furniture making. All tools and materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own tools.
What can I do next?
plans are in place for a chair making course which will be a natural progression for students on this course and of course Rycotewood is also able to link students with a wide range of potential employers and opportunities for internships and/or employment.
What else do I need to know?
Rycotewood Furniture will celebrate 80 years of furniture education this year.
