In the Apprenticeship class, Stephen Proctor spends 2 weeks sharing his unique perspectives on the craft of woodworking while his class absorbs a lifetime worth of tips, techniques, and experiences. That's a pretty good rate of exchange, as his students are quick to tell you!
This first weekend in September was jam packed with great information as we ran 5 classes. Not only did we welcome "Basic Carving with Mary May" and "Segmented Ribbons with Malcolm Tibbetts" to our shop, students also got to enjoy "Accent Your Home With Custom Curved Moldings With Gary Striegler", "The Business of Woodworking with Scott Grove" and "Architectural Restoration with Scott Grove". Like I said... Jam packed!
Gary Striegler is recognized nation wide as the authority on creative interior trim and decorative interior treatments. This week he brings that expertise to our shop as he steps his class through the process of making fireplace mantles and decorative framing. It's always amazing how much gets built in 5 days under Gary's tutelage.
Scott Grove's brings a number of innovative techniques and game-changing tips to his class this week. Look in as they learn to use his wavy veneer seaming and solid wood edging techniques to create this one of a kind table top.
The Windsor Fan Back chair is an American classic. Join us as we watch Peter Galbert put his students to work as they craft their own Windsor chair, using the same techniques that have been used for centuries. It time to mount that shaving horse, folks!
John Jordan brings a wealth of experience and lots of new techniques to the lathe as his class spends the week exploring Hollow Vessel Turning. They leave with new knowledge and lots of hands on experience!
