Sneak Peek at 2016 Course Calendar

Here's the current version of our 2016 Schedule. We're still working on details and will be opening registration on November 14th.

We're expanding - we're adding a new machine room and bench room. This will allow us to teach more classes and to more fully teach the use of woodworking machines - for example you'll see a new 12 week furniture making intensive in Fall.

Other new courses

  • Design / Build Studio (April) - your chance to take four weeks to focus on designing and building a piece of furniture
  • Building a Tiny House  (April / May) - a four week program to build a solid wood tiny house. More details soon
  • Just Joints  (July and August) - a five day focus on joinery techniques
  • Beginning Relief Carving and Open Studio (June) - two week long classes from Mary May
  • Intermediate Digital Design and Fabrication (July)
  • Spoon Carving (August) - week long and a weekend class with Jarrod Stonedahl
