Special Events



We have a whole range of seasonal classes throughout the year.  Some of our most popular classes are sledge building, make a bird house or bird table or make a hedgehog house which they can use all year round.  Another popular class for the warmer weather is our deckchair class – wood or fabric?  You choose.

Make a Christmas lantern

Build yourself a wooden lantern for Christmas.

Make a canvas deckchair

Build yourself one of the most comfortable chairs that are as much at home on an ocean liner or by the beach.

Make a Christmas planter/Christmas tree holder

You will create your own garden planter or Christmas tree holder ready for Christmas. Learn ways of connecting/joining planks together, marking out, and how to use hand and power tools safely.



I thoroughly enjoyed this course! It was a great blend of both understanding some basic woodworking, and then being allowed to independently move onto the actual cutting and construction of the chair. The group size was also perfect, was lovely to have people to work alongside, but also not too many people that you couldn’t get help if you needed. David was a fantastic tutor, and really helped everyone feel equipped to take on the project, no matter their level of previous experience. His encyclopaedic knowledge of woodworking was evident, and he was a very patient and encouraging teacher. I would highly recommend.
Make a canvas deckchair to take home
My daughter has been to a few workshops and always has a great time. So far she has made bookends, a bird feeder and most recently a garden chair. David is patient and allows young children to learn how to use tools in a safe and controlled environment. I’d highly recommend these workshops.

Making a proper workshop into a child friendly space is quite an achievement. Giving a 12 year old confidence to use tools independently is just fantastic. My son has come back buzzing from the sledge making session. Cannot recommend it enough.
