Your Own Projects – £95 per day

I can guide you through your own chosen project, the picture below shows a Sam Maloof designed rocking chair which a student made.

This was a great project and very much led by the student.

Students taking this option normally come in for maybe one or two days a week for tuition, undertaking most of the work from home, only paying for the days they come in for tuition.

Gift Vouchers from £50 or the price of a course are available

The prices shown are for using Ash for all the courses. If a different wood is required then the difference in cost will be added to the price of the course.

All the Government guide lines are applied. I only take three students at any one time so there are only four of us in a workshop of about 70 square meters – so lots of room. There are hand washing facilities and sanitiser but please bring your own masks.
