We recently held our first weekend woodwork course, led by experienced tutor, Chris Tribe, on Tool Sharpening and Maintenance.

The workshop can take up to four students, who have access to their own custom made oak and beech workbench, an array of hand tools such as planes, chisels, saws, squares, clamps and marking gauges.
