Bodgers Barn is a dedicated green woodwork training centre, located in the coastal hamlet of West Bexington, in beautiful West Dorset. We offer a range of green woodwork courses for all ages and abilities.
Experience the pleasure of crafting hand-made artisan goods and furniture using green (unseasoned) wood, traditional hand tools and timeless techniques. From whittling a stick through to fine turned bowls and furniture, you’ll learn ancient skills and practical techniques under the gentle supervision of Mace Bryant, master craftsman and experienced, qualified tutor. With small group sizes (a maximum of four people on any course) you’ll receive personal and expert tuition that is tailored to you and your needs.
Our courses are suitable for all abilities; from novices, perhaps looking for an new hobby or outlet for their creative side, through to established craftsmen seeking to extend and complement their existing skills.
Bodgers Barn is is a registered Social Enterprise, proud to provide a range of longer term training programmes for people with learning disability, mental health issues and challenging behaviour.
