WOOD WEEK
February 28-March 6, 2017

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 Peter Follansbee as the Featured Instructor, offering coursework
in 17th century-style carving
