The individually tailored program includes not only traditional techniques such as shellac polishing or working with a scraper, but also relaxed coffee breaks and stimulating shop talk. Our participants will learn about repairing damage to wood, veneer or marquetry, pest control, making shopfronts passable, repairing chair legs, and will receive valuable tips and tricks from the field. Other course contents include working with bone or pearl glue, topics such as surface treatment or polishing with shellac.

Each course participant receives a script about different furniture styles: antiquity, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Louis XVI, Classicism, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau. The maximum size of the group is 5 persons, in order to be able to respond to the personal wishes and needs of the participants. You will have the opportunity to restore one or more pieces of small furniture that you have brought with you. We ask for your understanding that large pieces of furniture (e.g. cabinets) would exceed the time frame and their completion cannot be guaranteed during the course. Tools are available on site, but you are welcome to bring your own. Veneer, cut wood and surface material, and small parts such as screws and glue will be prepared by the instructor and moderately priced as needed on site.
All safety precautions will of course be observed, and participants will not only have access to a well-equipped, large workshop, but also to an idyllic garden for their work. Pure nature, healthy air, meditative moments and well-explained work steps make for a (dis)exciting week and guarantee good success. Please register quickly due to the limited number of places.

Course times: 9 - 12 o'clock and 13 - 17 o'clock
Price: € 650,00

Other course dates: If you want to attend a course but do not have time on any of the offered dates, you can arrange an individual course date (also over the weekend). Prerequisite: at least 4 participants or corresponding price change. Furthermore, there is the possibility of a "taster day" (the first day is recommended) at one of the courses. Price for trial day: € 150,-.
