Our two-day wood finishing course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about the finishing experience and get some practical, hands-on experience. You’ll learn the techniques and products used by the studio. Wood finishing is not a ‘dark art’ – it’s a woodworking craft using simple techniques that can help you to finish your work to a professional standard. You’ll produce samples of all the finishes in oak, walnut, cherry, maple, and sapele. We’ll cover sanding, scraping, raising wood grain, wood stains, wood bleaching, UV protection, oils, waxing, brushing and ebonising, and if time allows, a little repairing. Tutor: Marc Fish.
