This course exceeded my high expectations: simply one of the best presents I have ever received. Ian is a friendly, gifted tutor and has clearly put considerable thought into the design of the course. The atmosphere was sociable and relaxed, but also maintained a pace of learning that I found extremely satisfying, aided by the small class size (Ian plus three of us). I got a great balance between the progress of getting my coffee table done (it looks great and I am very proud of it!) and learning woodworking skills that I will be able to use again and again. I cannot recommend this course highly enough - thank you Ian!

My courses are currently suspended and will reopen when it is 100% safe for me to teach in a small, enclosed environment for extended periods. Given the current rampant state of omicron, my age and current lack of immunity ( mid April 2022) the courses are not likely to start in the near future.

Discover the satisfaction of woodworking through fun but focused weekend carpentry courses in North London.
All courses offered by London Woodwork Classes are suitable for beginners and are sensitively taught by an experienced and knowledgeable teacher. Places are limited to three to create plenty of time for individual attention. You will use a range of traditional carpentry skills and tools to create one of six products of which you'll be proud.
Whether a newcomer to carpentry or a 'could do better' woodworker, your course will teach you to mark up precisely and hold tools correctly in order to use them efficiently. You'll produce products as well made as those in the photographs and you'll leave with a solid foundation of transferable knowledge that you can use in your own projects.
You can choose between a 4, 4.5, 10.5, 13.0 or 18 hour course depending on how much you want to learn.
There is a lower age limit of 18 for my courses but no upper age limit!
