Devon Furniture Makers

Woodworking and furniture making courses

UPDATE: 7th January 2021 - We regret that David no longer offers woodworking courses.

David Ames is now offering a full range of woodworking and furniture making courses to suit every skill level. Whether you just want to expand your knowledge and skills, or intend to retrain as a professional furniture maker, courses can be tailored to suit the student’s specific needs, requirements of knowledge, time available, end plan and so on.

Whether you are a complete beginner, an enthusiastic amateur, a good maker with a need to develop more design confidence or even planning a total career change, David likes to tailor the course to suit the needs of individual students. For example a long-term course could be part time if the student needs to keep earning while studying.

Shorter recreational courses are perfect for a vacation or holiday and include materials, refreshments and lunch. Bed and breakfast accommodation at Catsheys (next door to the workshop) is available for weekend courses.

To find out more about taking a short or long term woodworking course, go to, email or phone + 44 (0)1409 281579 to discuss your learning requirements in more detail with David before booking.
