Introducing our Beat the Boredom Series

Fun Woodworking Projects for your Budding Woodworkers

Our Beat The Boredom series started life in our Axminster retail outlets. Designed to help fill the hours of the school holidays with simple projects for children, our Beat The Boredom classes are always fully booked. With our retail stores now fully open, but our Axminster Skill Centres temporarily closed, we're bringing these projects online for you to enjoy at home instead.

We’ll bring the in-store experience to you with fun woodworking projects for you to try with children of all ages. Providing a list of tools and materials, and visual step by step instructions, our expert Skill Centre Tutors will guide you through a range of fun and innovative woodworking project ideas.

Our Beat the Boredom projects are open to children (or adults!) of all ages but for safety purposes, please ensure children are accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Projects to try...

These will provide budding crafters with creative inspiration and a chance to learn new hand tool skills.

More to come...

Join us every week as our friendly team show you how to make fun, useful items using tools you'll find at home or in your workshop! Watch this space...

Also, why not take a look at our Skill Centre At Home series? Every Tuesday and Thursday at 4pm our Skill Centre tutors will bring the Skill Centre to your home with live videos, woodworking projects and top tips.
