I offer a number of training courses and can cater for the all levels; from the complete beginner to the professional. All courses take place in the workshop and are always one to one. They are all pre-planned to suit the trainee's exact requirements. The courses can be as intensive or relaxed as you wish and you will leave with a wealth of new knowledge and practical skills.
I have always enjoyed having learners in the workshop. Two people who have spent time with me have gone on to become full BAFRA members.
Here is what one recent student has written about his learning experience in the workshop.
'I spent three days with David on a French Polishing and Hand Finishing Techniques course, the one to one tuition and the amount of technical knowledge David covers is incredible, he is also a fantastic teacher, I learnt more in three days than looking through various books and instruction websites over the last five years!'
The different courses are listed on the left.
If you are interested please feel free to telephone or email and we can decide what is best for you.
The workshop is in a quiet and peaceful rural location in North Devon near the village of Chittlehampton.
There is a good supply of accomodation available locally.
If you wish to come by public transport Umberleigh railway station is nearby and we are happy to deliver and collect you from where you are staying.
You will be well looked after when you are here with lunch and as many biscuits as you can eat.
Paul Chilton, a David Savage student, came here for two days and has written a blog entry with some good pictures.
It provides an insight into what you might expect if you come here for some training.
