You must know the essential use of chisels, saws, hand planes, mortise-and-tenon joinery and dovetailing.
You must bring your own ear and eye protection. I strongly recommend the use of closed shoes for safety.

  • Days lost due to non-attendance cannot be recovered.
In intensive courses, we have accommodation in the same compound. It is an exceptional opportunity to interact with classmates and teachers! In our free time, we find moments to exchange impressions, get to know each other and continue sharing.
The accommodation facilities are 25 m2 tiny houses with two levels, double and single beds, with electricity. Depending on the number of students, you may have to share it with another person, although the space is sufficient to maintain some privacy.


To concentrate on the course experience, we have a kitchen service with tasty, healthy, local and seasonal dishes. The service includes breakfast, lunch and dinner—vegetarian/vegan alternatives upon request. Please make sure you inform us well in advance of any allergies or intolerance of other issues. Otherwise, we won’t be able to satisfy your requests. Please note there will be one single person cooking with love for us, and alternative dishes are hard and time-consuming to prepare.

Meals and accommodation cost 700€ for the eleven days, arriving September 23rd in the evening to October 5th in the morning. Lunch and dinner on September 30th are not included, as we’ll eat at a restaurant. Contact us for more information and booking the food & accommodation service.
