The Furniture Makers‘ Programme is a 32 week intensive course split equally into four 8-week terms.
Each term has a tutor selected to teach their area of expertise giving students access to an enormous skill bank and depth of knowledge to tap into. We appreciate that the full time programme is not a practical option for many people so it is an option for potential students to enrol for an individual term within the full time programme.
Students who have not previously attended an introductory / beginners course here prior to enrolling in more advanced courses within the full time programme will need to discuss with us their skill level and experience.
However, please note that priority is always given to those students completing all four terms.
