Document/ Jewellery Box Course

Join Neil for 6 days and make this amazingly detailed box. You will learn about timber choice, joints, veneering, inlay making and fitting of hardware, finishing and much more.

Participants have a choice of timbers and only the finest, British-made, SMART  hinges and locks will be used. Each box contains a tray, nicely divided for those small, but precious things. Fee includes all materials. Please note, we have extended this course from 5 days to 6 to ensure that each student's box is completed to a high standard.

Please note, there is already keen interest in this course, so, first in first served!

One-on-one Mentoring

One-on-one training is the quickest, most direct and efficient way to learn every facet of the art of fine furniture, whether it be about design, construction or finishing, or indeed, marketing and business modeling suited to the designer/maker. This way, you can acquire the necessary skills in the specific areas you feel are lacking, helping you to produce truly outstanding work.                                                       
Each participant works exclusively alongside Neil and has the freedom to direct the nature of activities, whether it be resolving a design, or honing a specific set of skills. With numerous national design and making awards under his belt, and with his vast experience gleaned over the past 40 years, Neil can guide your skills to the highest level. Past students have been amazed at the rapid progress they make when the focus is entirely directed at their own personal training needs only, many having remarked that this form of professional mentoring represents excellent value for money compared to group courses.
As with our Bench Space Sessions, One-on One Mentoring must be booked and paid for in advance. It is recommended that each participant brings along their own hand tools.     

Please note:          Materials costs are not included.
