Rowden students have such an advantage compared to other makers - you will go miles further than the rest … I'm impressed.

We put everything on the table for Rowden students to leave extremely capable makers. We have recently seen near 100% for our students, leaving and successfully meeting their objectives. Some are setting up under their own steam, and others are employed in some of the best cabinetmaking workshops in the world; highlights of both can be explored on our Alumni Page.
