Woodworking courses

Ten Reasons to Learn Woodworking

at Little Trewern!

  1. Personal tuition – maximum two learners. This allows you to learn safely (good tools are sharp!) as well as to work at your own speed.

  2. Excellent teaching. As a qualified and experienced teacher I plan every student’s learning carefully. Additionally, each module has a colour handbook which explains and illustrates the skills or techniques that you have learned, so that you can continue learning at home.

  3. Flexibility with course dates – you can choose when you want to learn! We can usually fit our course dates into your plans; so send us a message and tell us when you want to come.

  4.  Fabulous venue! Little Trewern sits in a stunning secluded position with spectacular views of the Black Hill (Crib Garth) and the Black Mountains. This ‘borderland’ (you can see Wales from your window!)  is atmospheric and unspoiled, with a tapestry of woodlands and hedged fields riven by sparkling river valleys.

  5.  Luxury accommodation or self-catering! Your ground floor suite (with sitting room & woodburner) is only a few yards from the workshop. And the food is superb! Check out our 5* reviews on Tripadvisor. However, we also have self-catering accommodation available in our Mountain View cabin.

  6. Walk, relax and work in our native woodlands, which are especially beautiful in the spring time with the flowering of the understorey (wood anemone, bluebells, yellow archangel) and the hammering of the woodpeckers on the trees. Plus wander alone and practise your tree and plant identification skills!

  7. If your partner isn’t a ‘woodie’, Rhiannon runs bread-making and pizza-making courses using our own outdoor wood-fired oven. And you can practise your French patisserie as well! Otherwise, just relax by the woodburner in the winter, or on the terrace in the summer, whilst your partner saws away in the workshop!

  8.  All tools and materials are provided. If you own your own tools, then by all means, bring them along. There is a small charge for timber that you use, depending on quality and quantity.

  9.  Flexible modules, you can mix and match different elements of the modules to suit your own knowledge and experience.

  10.  Do your own thing! You may have a specific project in mind, for instance making an ash dining table. I am happy to discuss your project with you beforehand,  and then tailor a course to your particular needs.
