Woodworking Courses with Derek Jones, 2017 Woodworking Courses with Derek Jones, 2017

If the only time you get to hang out in the workshop is at the weekend, then why not join Derek Jones on one of his short and sweet classes this year. Each class is project-based, which means you’ll be taking more than just a head full of tips and tricks back home with you. Using just hand tools you’ll be able to make an exquisite marking gauge, a cunning little Japanese style tool box, a six-board chest or brush up on your finishing skills with an introduction to French polishing. All below courses are being held at Robinson House Studio in Newhaven, East Sussex, except for the Moxon vice course, which will be held at Dictum, in Munich.

  • 1-2 April: build a Japanese-style tool box
