Update: Making Books Badly with Sean from Badly Made Books is on June 15th.

We’re gearing up for a summer of classes, workshops and special events here at Benchspace starting this April.

Benchspace Bites are back in full force on April 6th with 3 classes over the summer where you can make your very own piece in a single class, even if you have no previous woodworking experience. Over the summer we’ll make a Desk Organiser (July 6th), a Live Edge Clock (May 4th) and the Rustic Coat Rack from last semester on June 1st. We’d advise booking quickly as these classes sold out in a few days last semester.

Evening Courses will run again over the summer but will be extended by two weeks to allow people to miss a few weeks for holidays, The following sell out classes will return.

We are also pleased to announce a new Evening Course this summer for those who are interested in the more DIY aspect of Woodwork. Introduction of Practical Woodwork will start on May 31st and will focus on DIY & Practical carpentry using traditional hand tools. This course will benefit the complete beginner as well as those looking to learn some tips and tricks to make their work quicker and neater.

Other changes in the workshop include our recently launched “Open Making Sessions” twice a month on Saturday mornings which allow you to rent a bench for the morning for €10 and work on your own project, we’ll be there to give you a little advice and guidance if needed.

All of the above and much more can be found on our newly launched Calendar on www.benchspacecork.ie 

We hope to see you in the workshop soon.

The Benchspace Team.
