Spinning, turning, dipping, mounting, casting, oxidising, making, designing – when it comes to wood, plastic and plaster, The General Workshop is the place to be.  Run by four very experienced technicians, you’ll be led by their expertise and will gradually become more independent as your own skills develop.

Students’ creations vary.  From pieces of furniture to prototypes and installations our facilities include all the industrial tools you need to get your job done - such as saws, drills, sanders, casting slips, glazes, powders, kilns and lathes.  And our materials include sheet materials such as plywood and MDF, linear timber such as redwood and oak, plastics and different types of expanded polystyrene – giving you a great selection to work with.
