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.
Courses will run either Tuesday-Thursday or Saturday-Monday.
All students, regardless of start date are invited to
participate in the one day Carverís 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 wintertime wood-fired pizza bake that
night!). We are especially pleased to welcome
