Amber Duncan started teaching woodworking because she realized what a difference working with wood could make in other people’s lives. Her students have ranged in age to those in their late 80’s, and she loves them all. Amber is especially excited to share her knowledge with the next generation of woodworkers as well as with those who may not have the same opportunity as others to pursue the craft world. In 2020, Amber was the recipient of the John C. Coolidge Student of the Year Award at MASW. When not wishing she were designing a new piece of wood art, she can be found at the comedy club, reading or spending time with her family.

A special note about our photos:

We have taken HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of photos over the years of our students, instructors, and staff — during classes, after classes, and at various gatherings. Throughout this brochure and on our website, you will see many photos that were taken prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Images of people without masks or not practicing social distancing were taken before the pandemic and before the safety practices were implemented. Please rest assured, we follow all of the safety precautions and guidelines mandated by our local and state health officials. Community means everything to us —we aim to provide a safe environment for all who teach and learn at MASW. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our practices, or would like more detailed information about the school’s health and safety guidelines, please do not hesitate to call or email us!
