Continuing education


Unfortunately, for the moment we had to suspend registrations for our courses. If you wish, you can join our VIP list. You’ll be the first to be notified when our new programming is released.

The École d’ébénisterie d’art de Montréal offers a unique array of general public courses and workshops in woodworking. They are offered «à la carte» (you choose only the courses that interest you) and are focused on discovery and practical learning (non-degree training). Courses are taught in small groups by qualified artisans, on Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings as well as on Saturdays during the day. On top of making projects, you will learn through them to master different woodworking or finishing techniques, to use safely manual or power tools, as well as different machine tools. Please note that you must be 18 years or older to attend.

Our courses are divided into three levels: BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED. Most of the courses offered are at the BEGINNER level. They are open to everyone, without any prerequisites. We currently offer one INTERMEDIATE level course : L’apprenti 2 EN. It requires as a prerequisite, Apprenti 1 EN or intermediate level on woodworking machines. We do not offer advanced English courses at this time. If you are comfortable in French, L’apprentie 3 may interest you. Otherwise, we can develop a customized course adapted to your needs (minimum of six participants required). Contact us.
