Richard Crosland School of Fine Woodwork
Sydney’s Oldest School of Fine Woodwork with Richard Crosland
Richard’s classes consist of many students, some with engineering or design backgrounds, and some with no previous experience in woodwork at all – but they all learn the craft of furniture making. Students can try it or stay on to design & make their own furniture, custom designed for their houses, presents for other people or pieces taken from existing designs on the net. It’s a collaboration.

Thirston Morris – Woodworking Classes
I teach beginners and intermediates, the necessary skills to create and finish a piece, first through a number of set pieces and then through furniture they want to make for themselves.
I help with everything from the design through to the final finish.
Through this process we will learn to value the materials with which we work, the knowledge which has come down to us and ourselves through our work.
These classes will suit anyone with a desire to create a fine piece of furniture that is both practical & beautiful, while attaining woodworking skills & a sense of achievement at having made it yourself.
