What can students expect?

<p><span style="font-size:16px"><span style="font-family:Arial,sans-serif">Hands-on experience from the start; you will begin work on your project during the first lesson. There may be dust involved when stripping the furniture and loose tacks and staples on the floor therefore dress appropriately and wear suitable footwear.</span></span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:16px"><span style="font-family:Arial,sans-serif">As the learning is based on individual projects and there will be new and experienced learners, the pace of tuition can be uneven; please be patient!</span></span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:16px"><span style="background-color:yellow">Please note due to storage limitations, we are unable to store your piece of furniture at the end of the course unless you have enrolled on the next course. Pieces left behind without prior agreement will be disposed of.</span></span></p>

Late starters allowed?
