ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: If you need a gift for Christmas you should join Alexander Berchert little woodwork class and make a lovely wooden chest to keep or give away. The class will run for 2 hours and cover all tools and materials, including fancy woods like oak, walnut, teak and pine. Along the way you will learn how to join, sand, stain and wax your box to a superb finish.
Come down for a Christmassy afternoon filled with craft, cookies and mulled wine.
