MASW Student


As we near our 30th anniversary, I’m amazed at the “affect & effect” MASW has had on our student body. Hundreds of our alumni have gone on to start their own business. Others have submitted their work in local and national competitions, most winning top honors. Nearly every woodworking magazine, both in America and abroad, have featured articles by MASW family members. Countless alumni have volunteered their time or skill to some noteworthy cause.

Today there are close to 500 people who have completed their Masters, with hundreds working toward that achievement.

“So that's my story of how I took a great art quilt class at a woodworking school in Indiana.”

A MASW student from Pennsylvania, Nina Marie, shared her experience with the school through her blog. She talks about working with instructor Timna Tarr and how much she enjoyed the workshop. In her classroom, there was even a "Will" and 3 o'clock was renamed "ice-cream o'clock"! To find out why she recommends the class and how many workshops her husband has attended, visit her blog here!

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!
