The Centre for Fine Woodworking is a charitable educational trust with the principal aim of offering high quality tuition in fine woodworking - New Zealand's premier teaching environment for woodworking, furniture making and design.
We run a wide selection of short courses and a full-time programme with low student to instructor ratios, so you quickly gain an extremely high skill base for follow-on courses, or for your own personal journey towards becoming a woodworking professional or enthusiast.
The short courses include tool making and maintenance courses, as well as project-based courses, where you take home the inspired piece of furniture you make.
The full time programme has been developed by a team of professional woodworkers and tutors with extensive teaching and training experience. It progresses via a series of projects covering all the main areas of fine furniture making.
Contact us to discuss the perfect course for you.
