Training Process

The trainee undergoes both theoretical and practical training. He learns furniture carpentry through observation and actual application of carpentry skills on particular projects. He works together with the trainors and learns to read and execute the working drawings. On the third module, he is taught product costing or entrepreneurship which prepares him for future livelihood projects.

His work experience starts from cutting the wood, using the different tools and machines, assembly and finishing. Thus, he realizes that the finished products is in itself more than just a piece of wood, more than just a work of art - it is treasure born out of the harmonious interaction of the trainees, shop workers and trainors.

During the whole process of learning, he is transferred from one work group to another. This enables him, to acquire and apply carpentry skills and techniques for different furniture styles.

Trainees observe strict study and work schedules thus acquiring the right thinking and working habits necessary as they enter the employment stage. The process is two-prong: technical skill and values training, and the spirit behind it is the desire for unity through unselfish sharing of knowledge and treasure.
