Oak Frame Courses are led by Alan Ritchie, one of the country's top craftsmen, with over 30 years experience in working with wood.

We currently offer five or ten day intensive Timber Frame Courses hosted in a beautiful woodland workshop in the Brecon Beacons.

These are very practical hands on courses covering a wide range of skills. From timber selection to cutting all the most commonly used joints. Most importantly we will be covering the marking out system which is unique and essential for framing green wood.

We aim to give you an insight into this ancient craft in a relaxed and enjoyable environment, so you can head home again inspired, with a few new skills under your belt.
