Adrian Ferrazzutti & Tim Rousseau
July 15 – August 2

In this three-week, self-directed open studio, bring a design you want to accomplish and have two extraordinary woodworkers and instructors guide you through. You will have preliminary consultation with the instructors about the type and scale of project you’re interested in tackling in the months leading up to class, and you have wide latitude in what you may choose to work on. It could be casework, curved works, veneered work, chairs, or whatever else you want to accomplish in the time allotted. There will be lectures and group discussions, but the time will primarily be devoted to one-on-one instruction and assistance as you benefit from Adrian and Tim’s extensive experience and multiple decades in the making & teaching fields.
