Every creation you craft is yours to cherish. As you sculpt, sand, and finish, you’ll not only have tangible pieces of art to take home but also invaluable skills and memories forged in the heart of our community.

Closed shoes are a mandatory requirement for all students.

Those with their own turning chisels and chucks should bring them along to get better accustomed at using them but we also supply all tools if you don’t have any.

We have a kitchen onsite with fridge and microwave for those that want to bring their own food, and there are also takeaway options within walking distance.
