We reckon that there are 10 good reasons to come and learn woodworking here at Little Trewern!

Our new woodworking courses have been designed for beginners or ‘improving’ woodworkers. 

And we reckon that there are 10 good reasons to come and learn woodworking here at Little Trewern!

  1. Personal tuition – maximum two learners. This allows you to learn safely as well as to work at your own speed.

  2. Excellent teaching. As a qualified and experienced teacher, Simon plans 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! Check out our availability online, and send us a message.

  4.  Fabulous venue! Little Trewern sits in a stunning secluded position with spectacular views of the Black Hill (crib Garth) and the Black Mountains. 

  5.  Luxury accommodation or camp! Your ground floor suite (with sitting room & woodburner) is only a few yards from the workshop. And the food is superb!  However, if you’re tough and hardy then you can camp in our woods and check out the spectacular skies at night-fall.

  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.

  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. 

  9.  Flexible learning. 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.
