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.

If you have a home workshop during these troubled times you are very fortunate. What better place could there be to self isolate or practise social distancing. The hours and days can fly by when you are engaged in the act of making.
.
To all those around the world being asked to isolate and social distance please do what you can. The science clearly shows that it will save lives and help reduce the pressure on health services.
.
To all those on the front line fighting against this cruel virus you are heroes.
