This course is for 12 weeks consisting of 24 guided learning hours. Please check the BAES web site www.learnbaes.ac.uk BAES Learning Directory, visit or telephone one of our adult learning centres for details.
This course is for anyone who wants to learn about the basic techniques, tools and materials required to be able to independently produce items which will enhance garden or outdoor spaces.
You will not need experience of woodwork as beginners are welcome on this course. But, as the course involves taking notes and measurements you will need to have basic levels of English and maths. You will have a short initial assessment at the start of the course to ensure that it is suitable for you.
It could lead to further courses in woodwork techniques at Intermediate or Advanced Level.
To ensure that you gain maximum benefit from your course you will need to attend all sessions, be punctual, and bring the correct materials to each session.
Tools and equipment will be available for you to use at the centre during class times.
It will cost an average of £20 for basic tools and equipment to enable you to practise at home, and roughly £30 for all your materials.
Further information will be provided by the tutor at enrolment.
For the first week, you will need to bring a folder, paper and pen.
