    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.

    Framing is the process of connecting materials together to create a structure. Think of it as the skeleton that supports all the other features of a building. 

    Working individually, in pairs, and as a team --in this class you will frame and build an interior wall. You will get lots of time and practice with the power tools involved in the framing process. The wall will be constructed for the purpose of the class and then taken down at the end of the class. 

     The materials fee for this class is $50 and is included in the class admission cost.
