Choose what you would like to do and when you want to do it. Immerse yourselves in the woods for a day with expert tuition tailored to your interests.
2 day courses are for those wanting to learn the complete process of making a cup or goblet from start to finish. On a one day course you would need to finish off your cup or goblet at home yourself. On a 2 day course Wooden Tom will dry your item overnight in a kiln and we will spend the second day going thought all the different finishing cuts and tricks professionals will use to get your cup or goblet looking smart. We will then go through the use of a burnisher, chalk paint and finally oiling so you will go home with a completely finished item.
