WOODWORKING CLASSES IN MAINE

and related skills such as carving, turning, marquetry and finishing.

 
Outstanding instruction and facilities in a convenient weekend format.
Immerse yourself in woodworking for one or two weeks with the guidance of outstanding, professional craftsmen dedicated to sharing their skills, and the companionship of other enthusiastic participants.
If you are considering furniture making or turning as a profession, a sabbatical from your present career, or simply a life-enhancing skill, these courses are for you - twelve full weeks of hands-on woodworking in a fully equipped shop with daily personal instruction.
Designed for the aspiring professional furniture makers and dedicated amateurs who seek in-depth training at the highest standard of excellence.
Advanced creative opportunities
for emerging professional
and established woodworkers interested in exploring new work.
