Introduction to Carpentry and Joinery

Our 6 week introduction to carpentry and joinery course is designed for learners with little or no previous experience in the construction environment.


Learning will take place in the purpose-built workshops where learners will have access to a broad range of tools and equipment. Learners will be introduced to key techniques and processes.


Sessions topics will include, working safely in a carpentry workshop, use of power tools and hand tools, the basic wood joint techniques used in building a door and techniques applied in fitting a door.


This course is an excellent way to gain the knowledge and confidence to use wood working tools and to take on small wood based projects within their own home. For those who discover a real passion for carpentry and joinery during the course there are further opportunities to study formal qualifications at Richmond Upon Thames College.
