This course is run as 3 single open workshops per term. You can either work on a project of your own, with guidance and support from the tutor or, as a beginner, learn some of the basic skills and techniques of woodwork. (Use of machines is at the discretion of the lecturer and is dependent on the students’ experience).
People who have an interest in woodwork. This is aimed at people with no experience who want to learn the basics or those who have some experience and/or a project to develop.
No previous woodwork skills are required, just the ability to follow verbal instruction.
These Saturdays are very flexible. Depending on what students want, they can include the following: - Identify, select and learn how to use a selection of woodworking hand tools (chisels, saws, marking and mortise gauges, different planes i.e. smoothing, block, plough and rebate planes, etc.) and power tools (router, biscuitjointer, jigsaw, drill, sander, etc.) - Mark out and cut a selection of woodwork joints. - Chisel sharpening. - Hard and soft wood identification. - Planning of projects. Experienced students will be able to extend their knowledge and skills by working on their projects, with guidance and support from the tutor.
Group and individual demonstrations and instruction, discussion, project work, set exercises, question and answer sessions.
If you want to make a project, you will need to do some project development and source materials.
Feedback from tutor on project work and progress and recorded in your Individual Learning Plan.
