We offer four mutually-enhancing, hands-on programs that address the educational needs of a broad audience, from absolute beginners to experienced professionals.
One and two-week Workshops offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in woodworking with the guidance of outstanding, professional craftsmen dedicated to sharing their skills, and the companionship of other enthusiastic participants.
Offered three times per year, our Twelve-week Furniture Intensives are designed to meet the needs of aspiring professional furniture makers and amateurs on sabbatical from other professions. With two instructors available at all times and only twelve students, each participant is able to individualize the course of study to fit his or her interests and level of experience.
Our eight-week Turning Intensive prepares woodworkers for successful careers as professional wood turners, and is open to amateurs who wish to bring their work up to a professional level.
The Nine-month Comprehensive is designed for aspiring professional furniture makers and dedicated amateurs who seek in-depth training at the highest standard of excellence. The hands-on, project-oriented format includes the full range of furniture making skills. Sequential projects take students from the fundamentals through the fine points of design and craftsmanship.
The fourth program, Fellowships, provides emerging and established furniture makers, carvers, and turners with a stimulating environment for research into new skills, new designs, and new perspectives.
