Based in Cape Town, The Mercury School of Woodwork offers you the opportunity to rediscover the age-old craft of woodwork. Experience the joy and simplicity of working with your hands, along with the satisfaction of learning a useful skill. Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned woodworker wanting to brush up on technique, you'll find the course that suits you. Our youngest students were at Grade 8 level, and the oldest at 72 years!
The school was established in 2006 with the aim of providing students with the opportunity to gain knowledge of woodwork techniques, materials, machinery and finishes in a friendly, fun and safe environment. Our small classes ensure the perfect balance between shared learning and individual attention.
