Woodworking is a fine skill, and one that many are not too familiar with. However, with a few simple courses, you could be making everyday household items with your own hands.
Below are a few woodworking courses around Brisbane where you can learn this great skill.
My Learning Short Courses, in affiliation with TAFE Queensland, is holding a simple woodworking course, where you can learn the basics of carpentry, cabinet making, and even construct your own coffee table. You will be required to bring some basic materials, and students are urged to enrol before the end of February. The six-week course is open to people of all ages, and once complete, students will have the necessary skills to make their own projects and complete them with ease. For more information, including how to enrol online, please visit the website.
Another place to learn woodworking in a much more different setting is the RM School of Woodworking. This place "caters for adults who want to learn the various forms of woodworking". The School of Woodworking runs day classes, night classes and weekend classes; so you can attend the one that suits you. The head instructor. Robert Mc Kee, is a qualifies woodmachinist, with over 35 years experience. You do not need to have any prior woodworking experience to enrol in the course. Furthermore, you can get as many tips about tools, equipment and techniques as you need. For more information, including the various courses, please see the website.
Richard Vaughan's classes in fine woodworking is a place where you can learn specific techniques of woodworking over a seven week period. All tools and materials are provided, and the instructor, Richard Vaughan, is a man whose 25 years of experience has set him up to train others in the basics as well as the advanced techniques of woodworking. The classes consist of no more than eight people, making it small enough for Richard Vaughan to give you enough advice and instruction, as well as the benefit of working individually without any distractions.
In the final week of the course, you are free to take on your own project, with help from Richard Vaughan, and you can get other advice should you wish to continue your woodworking project. Once the course is complete, you should be able to do expert techniques in no time at all. For more information, please visit the website or call 3376 8520.
So to get your hand-on skills going, find a suitable woodworking course where you can unleash your potential.
