IBTC Portsmouth

We teach 1-5 day Short Courses, a 12 week Joinery course and a 1 year traditional wooden Boatbuilding course, all from our base in the heart of Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard.

Our experienced instructors teach traditional and modern techniques: sophisticated skills that allow you to take your woodworking hobby to the next level or prepare you for a successful career in boatbuilding, furniture making or related industries.

We welcome students of all ages and from all backgrounds. Prior experience is not essential for our courses; attention to detail and a willingness to work hard are what really counts.

Short courses this autumn and winter include Tool Restoration, Make a Boat Hook, Beech Mallet Making, Dovetail Tool Box Making and many more.

If you want a full list of our courses or to learn more about what we teach, come and chat with us at our stand. You can also see our students at work on weekdays in Boathouse 4, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, or book a place on one of our free Open Afternoons by emailing info@ibtcportsmouth.co.uk.
