Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I'm interested in sitting down with someone and having a chat about a project I'm after or a project I'm interested in making.

A:  We would be delighted to have a conversation with you regarding a project you're passionate about or one you're considering. Let's schedule a time to discuss and explore the possibilities. Click here to book a slot.

Q: I'm interested in attending classes - what projects can I build?

A:  We’ve structured our school so that you can build pretty much whatever woodworking project you want. We will help you design and assist you through your build. You can have a look at our student gallery for some ideas.

Q: How do I book into a class?

A:  The easiest way is to jump onto our website and enrol as a student. Otherwise, arrange a time with us and come in to visit our workshops at 142 Bundock Street Belgian Gardens.

Q: What if i've booked a class and something has come up and I can’t attend?

A:  Easy. Just jump online and log into your account and hit cancel or let us know in writing (email or text). If you have cancelled with more than 2 days notice, great, that's enough notice. Your pre-payment will be held in credit for next time you book. Any less than 2 days notice and we're going to hit you up for a late cancellation fee (50% of the class cost). This will be deducted when the class starts and the remainder will be held in credit. Please understand we are holding that bench for you and late notice will affect our ability to fill the spot. Failure to cancel will result in the full class fee being deducted.


Q: What if I don’t want to sign up as a student?

A:  We also periodically hold events  that are more structured to achieve an outcome in a set timeframe. Check our website for upcoming workshops under ‘Events’. You can book into these classes without enrolling as a student.

Q: Can I share a bench with a partner, friend or child?

A:  Yes, and at no additional cost, provided they sign the student handbook and you are both working together on the same project. 

Q: I have received a gift voucher but I’m not really interested in becoming a student. How can I use it?

A: Gift vouchers are non refundable and, although intended to be used for session fees, can be used to purchase stocked items such as timber, tools or our own hand made items available in our shop. Alternatively you could re gift the voucher or sell it to one of our existing students.

Q: Can I make fun of the apprentice?

A: Hmm, lets put it this way; If you treat Grasshopper well you will benefit greatly.
