Wood Week

Wed, Feb 28, 2018 - Tue, Mar 6, 2018

Event Overview

Let the woodchips fly! Join us for a week devoted solely to woodworking in its many forms. We have expanded the schedule this year, allowing for more course offerings, from spoons to bowls, stacked-handle knives to ax handling.

All students are invited to participate in our one day Carver’s Conference held Friday, March 3. This conference will include workshops, skill shares, excursions and open shop time at no additional cost (not to mention a rare winter-time wood-fired pizza bake that night). We are especially pleased to welcome Peter Follansbee as our featured instructor, offering coursework
in 17th century-style carving.

Festival Highlights

Carver's Conference, Friday March 3

As a special feature of this weekend, all classes will take a break on Saturday to allow everyone to participate in skill shares and open shop. Participation in the Carver's Conference is included in the tuition for all other carving courses (though some materials fees may apply). Skill shares are designed to be drop-in; no pre-registration is required.
