    It can be hard to find just the right picture frame--especially for one-of-a-kind art--and custom frames are expensive. Solve that problem by learning how to build your own! We'll use the table saw, chop saw, and drill to construct basic frames out of poplar. Students should come to class with dimensions of the piece they want to frame, and we'll take it from there!

    The materials fee for this class is $15 and is included in the class admission cost.

    Learn about the principles of Timber Framing. Through theory, demonstrations and hands-on practice-- learn to carve the two fundamental joints in timber framing (the mortise and tenon) and familiarize yourself with square rule layout, design conventions, reading the grain, and using a variety of hand and power tools. No prior power tool experience required but some upper body strength, strong vision and tape measure familiarity will benefit you a lot! You will leave the workshop with a tenon and a mortise checker for any future timber framing projects and the knowledge of how to start a larger project, what tools are necessary, and what resources are out there for deepening your understanding.

    The materials fee for this class is $20 and is included in the admission cost.
