Come this Autumn, we will have two self-catering accommodation units available for students to rent during a course.
‘The Stables’ will be the larger of the two units and will have plenty of room for a couple, with additional capacity from a double sofa bed. The bedroom is on a mezzanine floor with views to South Downs.
‘The Old Workshop’ will be more compact. This is a fully equipped bed-sit unit, perfect for one or two.
As soon as more details are available, I will add them to the website.
If you are interested in reserving one for an upcoming course, please email me and I will pencil you in, pending full details.

This Airbnb, within easy walking distance of the workshop, is a newly converted self-contained annexe in the former home of Sir Norman Wisdom.
No previous experience is necessary to successfully complete a Windsor chair making course and yet experienced woodworkers will still be fully challenged. Individual guidance and assistance will be provided as appropriate, and every effort will be made to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable course.
Written by James Mursell, this book was the first new book about the making and design of Windsor chairs for over 10 years. It was written with a broad readership in mind and is aimed at existing Windsor chair makers and also at those who are contemplating making their first chair.
Ben Orford makes the blades for my travishers.
Watch his short video about this great tool and the uses it can be put to.
“This tool is phenomenal. I bought two, one for myself and another for my Windsor chairmaker instructor. Compared to the other travishers I have used, yours is very good to work with and everyone who has tried it loves it. I just ordered a second one and your two spokeshaves which I trust will be as enjoyable to use. Thanks again for making such great tools.” LG (USA) 2015
