Each week you will be taught the required skills using both hand tools and power tools to create a set class furniture item under the direction of your tutor.
This year the project will be to create a Low Side Table from Pine, which you will be able to customise in certain ways towards the final weeks. This will be discussed and agreed upon with your tutor.
You will be required to complete activity sheets and photograph your progress which will document your developing skills for submission alongside your finished item of furniture.
This qualification aims to:
- enable learners to develop basic skills in woodwork with hand and power tools.
- provide learners with underpinning knowledge of woodworking processes, such as technical drawing, joints, profiles and ergonomics.
- provide learners with a basis for progression into further study in woodwork related areas such as the Level 2 Furniture Craft course or the Level 1 Building Maintenance course offered at Kendal College. They may also consider applying for our full time courses for the following year.
The objectives of this qualification are to help learners to:
- develop a portfolio of basic joints and a final set project.
- use materials, tools and equipment correctly and safely
- develop an understanding of health and safety considerations in the woodworking environment.
