  • Empowering – learn to love tools and continue to use them at home!

“I don’t need to wait for anyone else to do it anymore, I can do it myself!”


“TouchWood’s carpentry course was one of the best hands on courses I have attended.  Astrid was always calm, patient, knowledgeable, helpful and knew her stuff!  Her encouragement makes you feel you can tackle another carpentry project on your own.”
