Training Courses and Volunteer Opportunities
We run Training Courses and Volunteer Opportunities to share our love of traditional post and beam timber frame carpentry. A sustainable, beautiful and useful building technique that will last for generations. The hands on skills that you will learn with us, even over the course of a weekend, can hold you in good stead when attempting your own projects and builds. The techniques used to build a small structure can be scaled up to create anything from a shed to a barn.
The traditions and skills of post and beam timber framing go back hundreds of years and are still thriving today in many parts of the world. For various historical reasons there is less of a widespread use of them in Scotland right now. We hope to encourage as many people as we can to train in this way of building for the joy of doing things by hand, for the ecological opportunities of working with sustainably sourced timber and for learning to build for future generations.
We have been running training courses at our workshop in Fife and in Glasgow and are able to deliver them all over the country. Send us an email if you would like to attend or would like a course run near you.
