Teaching at Drummond

Fortnightly classes are available at Drummond. All fortnightly classes occur every month, in most months they are the 1st and 3rd week.

To ensure a smooth transition into fortnightly classes it is advisable that new students have completed one of the intensives. This gives me an opportunity to make sure your OH&S and machine training has been thoroughly covered.


PLEASE NOTE: 2023 Intensives are now full, but you can join the waitlist / express interest in 2024 intensive classes through our registration page.

See below list for project options. This is an opportunity to have intensive machine training, only 4 people for a 5 day period (9 – 4pm) and leave with a tool cabinet, workbench, coffee table, stool, 5 x jigs or discuss your own project with me.

Full fact sheets for all options including material costs are available upon request.
