Timber Framers Guild Regional Gathering

Course Overview

The 2018 TF Gathering will be filled to overflowing with all things timber framing –workshops, storytelling, pre-gathering course offerings and abundant woodchips. The Gathering begins on Friday night, with an Open House, tour of the North House timber framed campus buildings and film screening to kick things off. Saturday will feature speakers on topics of including using Sketch Up, grant-based projects and Japanese-style framing. The afternoon will feature a variety of hands-on demonstrations, including hewing, timber carving, blacksmithing, ax throwing and joint busting. The evening culminates with wood-fired pizza bake (BYO: Build Your Own!) and a group slide show. Sunday morning will include brunch and presentation. Your registration includes three meals (lunch, dinner and brunch) and participation in all seminars.

Families are welcome with an optional meal charge of $25 per person for Sat dinner and Sun brunch. Register here. Pre-event course opportunities require separate tuition and registration.
