About this event
Begin to learn the basics of carpentry in this six week course for women and make a beautiful piece of furniture for your home.
Wednesdays for six weeks, 10am – 1pm
September 12th – October 17th
Astrid finds that women are empowered by learning carpentry skills. In her classes there is no pressure to know anything in advance, thus a door to learning something completely new is opened, which increases self-confidence and satisfaction.
Astrid has been a carpenter for the last 16 years and has been teaching formally for over two years for her own company TouchWood South West in her workshop near Moretonhampstead on Dartmoor. She teaches joinery in on-going six week blocks once a week and she also teaches green woodwork to women who are survivors of domestic violence.
This course will focus on learning basic carpentry skills to create a beautiful piece of furniture for your home.
