Event description

Description

Running Mondays at 7pm from 18 September - 13 November
(8 weeks, excluding Monday 30 October)

At Benchspace Cork you will learn your craft at workbenches located alongside those of experienced furniture designer makers in Ireland’s first coworking workshop.

Please note: structured classes involve making a specific predetermined piece.

Our classes at Benchspace are focused on excellence in making and design. During our structured sessions you will make a set project which will introduce you to the first principles of furniture making, correct marking out, hand tool techniques and sharpening, and the all-important health and safety considerations. We welcome those with no woodworking experience, with projects designed to guide you through the process of becoming a confident woodworker.

For those intermediate students who have previously attended lessons, a somewhat more advanced piece will help develop your skill set and provide you with the fundamental knowledge to help you begin designing your own furniture in the future.

Our tutors have worked in the furniture making industry as well as in vocational education and bring a wealth of experience to our small groups of students. Hand tools are well maintained and sharpened, with accuracy and crisp work the aim of classes. Hardwood timbers used will aid in the precision of work and quality of finish.


As our classes evolve and community grows we hope to offer sessions which will allow the people of Cork to come and create their own ideas at Benchspace. Structured fine woodworking will be the first step in your journey with us.
