Details

Come and join us in the workshop and build your very own gorgeous light-up wooden house which can be used as a lovely festive decoration or calming night light. 

Suitable for beginners including family pairs working together (with older children age 10+), our three hour course will guide you through the process of making your own house which you can take home the same day. 

Jonty, your friendly instructor will teach you a range of skills step by step and work with you to refine your pre-cut components to perfection and help you create something awesome you can keep for life.

Workshop Dates:
Thursday 16th December, 6:30 - 9:30pm ~ Adults only
Saturday 18th December, 4 - 7pm ~ Families welcome (age 10+)

 
THE COURSE:

You will begin the course by studying a finished example and Jonty will talk you through the various steps needed and the tools you will use. 

The project needs to be completed in a specific order to get it done in three hours so after sanding everything, the whole class will complete the same jobs at the same time to ensure we do things right. 

We’ll be learning how to glue on veneer, how to build the house and roof, how to prepare the real cherry wood base and trees as well as working with miniature hinges for the door. 

We’ll finish off by applying a coat of oil to the project and adding our lovely string lights to make your house shine beautifully. 

This is a fairly tricky assembly and finishing project which requires the full three hours and the use of very sharp craft knives in places. As such, families attending should bear that in mind if planing on bringing children along. We recommend this is suitable for children ages 10+ if they are craft minded and happy to get really stuck in to a detailed project.  

Families working together must only bring two people in total per bench space booked and can split the jobs between them. If more than two spaces are required then please contact us and we will try and fit you in if we have room on the course. 
 

 
THE WOOD:
The house base is made from real Cherry Hardwood and the trees from a variety of hardwoods including ash, Sapele and American Black Walnut. 

The house is made from veneered Cherry and veneered Sapele with Walnut finishing pieces and Ash internal supports.


TOOLS YOU WILL USE:
• Variety of sandpaper grits 
• Craft Knives
• PVA Glue 
• Brushes
• Osmo Poly-X Hard Wax Oil
• Zero Grit 3M Finishing Pads 



SAFETY EQUIPMENT PROVIDED:
• Eye Protection
• Disposable Gloves 
• Woodworking Apron 
• Full training and instruction


THE VENUE:
The workshop is in Crondall, just off the A287 on the Hampshire/Surrey border. We are extremely proud of the Ash & Co workshop and offer a safe and friendly environment that welcomes all ages and genders to share in our passion for making.
