Recommended Order for The Masters
It is suggested that students start with either the Joinery or Handskills class as one of their first two workshops. Design or Finishing should be the third and fourth choices. The remaining workshops can be any of the technique workshops such as Turning, Carving, Veneering/Marquetry, any Elective or Chair Making and the final workshop should be the Apprenticeship class. This order will be the best way to build a sound foundation of woodworking where one class will build skills for the next class. (Please note that classes from other schools are not transferable.)
