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.
