What do I need to bring to the course?

Your tutor will advise you on a full tools list over the first couple of weeks. However for the first lesson it would be useful to bring: An item of furniture (no need to strip it first ), a pair of scissor and a tack remover. Although there will be some tools that you may borrow from the tutor, getting the essentials will ensure you are not having to wait to use tools.

A note pad, pen and a camera would also be useful for recording your progression.
