Shaving horses are useful tools for any woodcarver, and paired with the drawknife it is teacher Rose Holdorf’s favorite tool in their shop! With more than a dozen horses used for teaching woodworking classes, Rose has built shaving horses for a few places around (including Fireweed, ASI, and North House Folk School) and is excited to help a new group of friends make a whole herd! Throughout the long weekend, students will work together to build a shaving horse for each participant out of dimensional lumber and learn and discuss different types of horses, mules, and ponies and their diverse uses. This is a great opportunity for newer woodworkers to gain the skills and confidence to use a wide array of hand and power tools, or for more experienced woodworkers to pick up some tips and go home with a new tool of their own to make chairs, spoons, and other handmade wooden delights.

The materials fee for this class is $85 and is included in the admission cost, additional material fees will be payable to instructor. 

*** We do require masking indoors, whatever your vaccination status***


Taught by Rose Holdorf.
