We have recently tutored Spring 2019 QEST Scholar, Jack Relton. Funding from QEST facilited Jack to undertake his first formal training, a 12 week course at Williams and Cleal, where he honed his craft and widened his knowledge of materials, traditional construction techniques and hand skills. Our training will enable Jack to create a craft focused, contemporary range of furniture, continuing the legacy of British Furniture Making.
Our school is set in the heart of the beautiful West Somerset countryside, on the edge of the Brendon Hills. Offering stunning views across the Quantock Hills, this beautiful location, combined with a well equipped workshop makes Williams and Cleal the perfect investment of time in your future career or hobby. We encourage you to come take a look for yourself.
A perfect choice for those wanting to pursue a career change, gain skills for personal use or for those who wish to start their own business and develop their existing skill base. The course covers design and making with the majority of the time based within the workshop. The course can be individually tailored to student’s requirements.
This course has been designed for the complete beginner or for the more experienced who would benefit from going ‘back to basics’
