Golden Frames Woodworking School inspires, educates and facilitates you to build your own natural home.
We run a variety of hands-on woodworking course and workshops from our woodland home and school. Set in Blackwood forest, surrounded by trees and in a totally off-grid environment really allows you to be completely immersed in our courses as you learn the skills needed to create your own timber home. As well as our Timber Frame and Roundwood courses, we also hold workshops on how to make pole lathes and shave horses which enables you to create your own wood turned objects.
