This 5-week session teaches you the skills of marking out, sawing and chiseling timber. You’ll master the art of cutting accurate corner halving joints that form the foundation of all furniture making, and use it to make a cooking trivet using hardwood.
About Woodwork Basics: This workshop is one of our series for complete beginners. Each course introduces a different set of carpentry skills and an explanation of simple joinery. They aim to get you comfortable with using a range of basic hand tools and techniques so you can get started in the workshop. Once you’ve completed these basics, you can move onto our follow up series which takes these skills into the construction of built furniture projects.
This course will be led by Patrick King. Patrick originally trained in London as a multi-disciplinary designer. His work combines digital and analogue tools to design and produce objects ranging in scale from furniture to temporary and permanent architecture.
