Each of the 3 classrooms have four very large workbenches. Each class has a maximum of 8 students unless otherwise stated. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen with tea and coffee facilities. There are clean male and female toilets. The room has heating and air conditioning. There are tools provided and plenty of storage space for your work and/or timber. There is also a well-stocked resource library full of books sourced from all over the world.
The machine room is one of the highlights of the workshop. Extremely well equipped, it boasts some impressive machines that enable us to undertake just about any project. Most importantly, there is dust extraction to every machine. All the dirty air is pumped outside and only clean air is pumped back in. There is more storage on the mezzanine for student timber. There is also another work bench with vise for sanding.
