Recommended woodwork schools in Canada & UK
Hello woodworkers! I have free time at the moment and want to use that to research fine woodworking schools, in particular schools that are in Canada and the UK.
I’m from the UK and I’m looking for a school that offers intensive 1 or 2 year courses. Prices I can afford are around CAN$35,000 or £20,000, hopefully that’s in the right ball park for these courses, if not please correct me on what is typical.
I’m interested in bespoke architectural woodwork, my current background is civil engineering and construction work, so if there are schools that focus on this area then I’d like to know. Otherwise I’m interested in fine furniture making courses that will give me the necessary skills to break me into a career of woodworking. After I have studied my intention is to find a job in a workshop rather than set my own business.
As a basis to my research I am using the ‘Woodworking Schools Directory’ (linked here: https://www.finewoodworking.com/2007/01/18/woodworking-schools-directory ) However, you can’t beat real life advice and anecdotes about the ‘best’ schools, any of which would be very much appreciated.
Thanks and wishing health to you all in these interesting times.
