Centre for Fine Woodworking - Bench Rental Programme

New Zealand's premier furniture making, woodworking & design school



Bench Rental Programme – (also known as Grab-a-Bench)

A new initiative here in the workshop – a great opportunity to access a bench space here at the school where you can get to grips with that idea or project you have been thinking about.

Bench space is available at certain times throughout the year, and although the bench rental cost does not include any tutor access, we can, if required, organize on your behalf access to some guidance from our experienced teaching team. You will be able to access the full workshop and equipment and work in a creative and motivated environment.

The weekly charge for Grab–a–Bench is set case–by–case as it will depend on your individual project, equipment and mentoring/guidance required.

We are working out the timetable of bench availability in 2019 & 2020 so please get in touch if you would like to discuss your project in more detail.
