Carpentry Workshop 9-16 years

Summer Weeks  2, 3 & 4

(Week 1 is fully booked)


Four full days  10am – 4pm  £190 including all materials


A “hands on” workshop incorporating design, construction and innovation. 

Creativity and problem solving will be encouraged as students design their project on paper and make a prototype before constructing their final object in wood.  

The students will learn how to take an idea from 2D into 3D.  

They will be given a brief and encouraged to explore their own ideas whilst being guided in realising them. 

The skills learned on this workshop will be useful for the rest of their lives: 

  • Practical skills – the safe use of hand tools eg hammer, saw and drill.
  • How to use design and mathematical skills to translate ideas into reality
  • Valuable carpentry skills including measuring, sawing, fastening, drilling, rasping, sanding , shaping and assembly.
