carpentry workshop


The Carpentry Workshop is suitable for beginners who have never had contact with carpentry tools. You'll learn the art of transforming wood into useful objects, the work methodology inherent in carpentry, and the techniques according to what you're going to build. You'll also learn the function and handling of the vast glossary of hand tools we have in the woodworking workshop, such as saws and chisels.

Practical exercise

After a theoretical introduction and practical exercises in cutting, fitting, carving and hollowing, you will build an object designed by us. The execution of this object brings together various woodworking techniques and is an ideal exercise for your first contact with this craft.
In the carpentry workshop, we'll teach you how to interpret and plan the project, measure and mark the wood. And then put into practice the principles of joinery and exercises previously carried out, applied to this specific object.

No previous knowledge necessary. Minimum age for participation: 18 years old / Accompanied by an adult (two entries): 16 years old
