Why study Practical Woodworking?

The Practical Woodworking course provides a broad introduction to practical woodworking. It is largely workshop-based, combining elements of theory and practical woodworking techniques.

Candidates develop skills in reading drawings and diagrams, measuring and marking out, cutting, shaping and finishing materials. They learn how to work effectively alongside others in a shared workshop environment.

The Course is of broad general benefit to all learners. It provides a foundation for those considering further study, or a career joinery and carpentry, skilled construction, cabinet designer, picture frame and furniture designer.
