WATERS & ACLAND THE FURNITURE SCHOOL IN THE LAKE DISTRICT

The Waters and Acland Furniture School is dedicated to providing fine furniture training of exceptional quality. Our training facilities lie at the heart of our thriving commercial workshops and the workshop principal of ‘Perfection in the making’ is carried into the design and implementation of all that we offer within the furniture school. Whether you choose the one week ‘cabinet making course’ to get a feel for the quality achievable, set your sights on mastering hand skills on the ‘craftsman course’ or aim for true mastery on both the ‘master craftsman’ and ‘designer makers courses’, we have put much thought into establishing cabinet making courses that work for all. Individually tailored courses with small numbers of students and a dedicated team of time served teaching staff ensure that each student gets the attention they require, at all times.

FROM NOVICE TO THIS IN JUST 1 YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

What an amazing year. Our 2017/18 designer maker students produced some truly beautiful pieces of finely crafted fine furniture. The team here at the school have a passion for both the craft of fine furniture making as well as design. We obsess about every detail and the workshop motto of 'perfection in the making' is absorbed by all of our students.

All these pieces were made by students attending our 2017/18 designer maker courses. Many of these students came with no previous experience of design or furniture making. It's amazing what can be achieved in just 1 year within our furniture school. Interested? We still have places for January and September 2019 starts.

For further info just give us a call on 01539 822852 or mail Oliver or Will at info@watersandacland.co.uk

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
