Spoons and Cases, the latest from campus

Written by Heide Martin on .

While our campus is always humming, the Workshop season keeps it truly bustling with activity. From June to October, students and instructors join us from all across the globe for one- and two-week workshops. Each year we offer our foundational course, Basic Woodworking, alongside a diverse and always changing assortment of classes. Many classes focus on furniture building and design, but we also offer more specialized topics in marquetry, carving, turning, finishing, and instrument making. This week, Tim Rousseau is teaching Classic Casework with Kendrick Anderson, and Kristin LeVier and Josh Vogel are co-teaching Carving Spoons, Carving Sculpture. Scroll through for a glimpse into Workshop Season!
