Join us for a course - absolutely no experience needed!!!
Sylvantutch has always been more than just a furniture business. It is a social enterprise, with its core values rooted in a desire to share knowledge and experience with others, and to spread the positive influence of its work.
Our furniture making courses have provided many hundreds of men, women and children, with no previous carpentry experience, with the tools, techniques and inspiration to build their own furniture, as well as enabling a number of successful spin-off furniture businesses.
Learn the art of making rustic furniture using saws, drills, axes and hammers and get accustomed to the different sustainable UK woods and their properties.
Come and enjoy one of our courses and learn how to make anything from a chair to a canoe ...
Courses run throughout the year, seven days a week, on a date to suit you. We only ask that you give us a week's notice to prepare the wood. There are several excellent accommodation options around us if you want to stay overnight and explore the area, ranging from yurts, to posh but affordable guesthouses. Send us an email with the dates you would like to attend and if you need help with finding accommodation.
You Can Make Beautiful Rustic Furniture from our new Ebooks!
Making beautiful rustic furniture is easy! It may not seem it at first, but with a little guidance, some insider tips from the experts and a few spare hours it really is very simple.
Starting with nothing but materials we find, we now have one of the most celebrated and successful rustic furniture businesses in the UK, and nothing makes us happier than sharing our craft. As each chair, bench or mirror frame is lovingly finished we take another step towards our spiritual goal to "Make the Future Beautiful".
We want you to join us in making that beautiful future, sharing every valuable lesson we've ever learned over the years, from sourcing and preparing materials to making sublime furniture pieces from a selection of our most popular designs.
Distilling all the essentials from our ever-popular and oversubscribed day courses our eBooks range will take you on a journey of empowerment and discovery for a small fraction of the price of the day courses.
We have setup another website called Makethefuturebeautiful where we sell ebooks on how to make rustic furniture.
