Alan Lacer spent his week sharing his deep knowledge of turning with a bunch of new woodturners. Talk about getting started on the right foot!
We kick off our 24th season with our founder at the helm teaching his foundational joinery class. You arrive thinking you know how do joinery and you leave five days later knowing you know it. It's quite the transformation!
Michael Fortune brings his years of experience as a successful furniture designer to a group of eager students. By the end of the week, he's turned their ideas of design upside down.
Another year has come and gone, but the impact of our foundational Joinery class continues to march on. Marc's students got what is probably the best introduction to hand and machine joinery available anywhere!
We close out the year with one of the classes we began our 2016 season with–our ever popular woodturning introduction led by Alan Lacer. His students got to experience the joys of spindle and bowl turning and Alan's demos included everything they needed to get started safely in the craft.
Just as Michael was here at the start of the season, he's here again at the close. This week he condensed all that he knows about creating chairs into 5 short days as his students learned how to go about designing and building custom chairs from the master.
