Learn how to turn a candlestick, an egg cup or your own design
During this 2 to 5 day course, Hervé will introduce you to the basics of woodworking.
Wood is a noble material, which can easily be tamed but which requires a great deal of concentration and a solid technical base. The use of different wood species, the names of the tools, the safety rules to be respected – these will be the basis of your training. Armed with this knowledge, it will be time for you to start your own project. Under the watchful eye of the cabinetmaker, who is also a certified teacher, you will draw the plans for your future work, before moving on to the creation.
The abbey workshop
Hervé’s workshop is aptly named, being located in a place as peaceful as it is curious: the Abbey of Notre Dame du Port du Salut. The priory is well known for the cheese that was made there by the Trappist monks, but it was also home to a carpenter whose workshop Hervé took over a few years ago.
It is in this calm and original setting, not far from Mayenne, that you will develop your skills as a budding carpenter.
