Learn the fundamental woodwork techniques through making your own wooden stool in a day with workshop manager and maker Tom Philipson.

This day workshop explores woodwork using recycled off-cuts of broken bits of woodwork and prioritises using the minimum number of cuts to get the maximum amount of useable timber. If your interested in design but don’t have any woodwork skills, this is the course for you!

During this brilliant introduction to woodwork, you’ll learn all the basic techniques including sawing, measuring, drilling, hammering and finishing.
The workshop will equip you with transferrable skills and workshop know-how to then tackle other making projects at home with minimal materials or equipment.

If our workshops take your fancy, but you’re not local to The Farmer’s Arms, we have accommodation so you can make a weekend out of your visit! The Farmer’s Barn is our self-catering hostel perfect for solo travellers and The Farmer’s Loft is our spacious six person apartment situated above the workshop.

Thinking of gifting a place on our courses for someone special this Christmas? Our new Gift Certificates are now available to purchase!
