I’m still working out my teaching schedule for 2015. Some of it is now booked & open for registration. I will add things to this page as they get sorted.
At the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking, http://schoolofwoodworking.com/woodworking-classes.html a big undertaking; one weekend per month for 5 months – to build a joined chest with a drawer.
Here’s the dates: Saturday & Sunday, March 21/22, April 11/12, May 23/24, June 27/28 & August 8 & 9, 9:30am – 5:00pm
in this class, we’ll build a joined carved chest w a drawer (one, not 2 like in the photo) It’s part of a collaboration between CVSWW & the Windsor Historical Society.
There’s a whole long text about the class – here’s the link. Scroll down towards the bottom
A new local venue, you’ve heard me talk about it previously; Plymouth CRAFT – 2 days of making spoons January, 17th & 18th, 2015.
October 19-23; Another new venue for me, Marc Adams’ School in Indiana. Everyone I know teaches there & more besides. What a place! It’s my first time there, & I’m looking forward to it. We’ll make the oak carved box in this 5-day class.
the usuals – Lie-Nielsen; two workshops so far. One May 9 & 10, spoon carving.
One June 6 & 7 carving 17th-century designs like those I use on furniture.
Spring in Maine – why not?
It’s the year for new venues – The New English Workshop; http://www.newenglishworkshop.co.uk/ It’s the British invasion done backwards; me, Chris Schwarz, Roy Underhill, Jeff Miller, Tom Fidgen, maybe more.
a five day course, July 13th-17th Bridgewater College and July 20th – 24th at Warwickshire College in England. We’ll be making the oak carved boxes. IN ENGLAND! Wow.
Not sure how registration works for this one; but ALASKA. Yikes. Imagine the birds there!
a carved box April 25-27 and spoons May 1 & 2. I go see birds & what ever else in-between.
Roy Underhill & I made plans the other day for spoon & bowl carving in June; might be 17-19. A 3-day class making spoons & hewing bowls. I’ll let you know when that’s ready for registration, you know Roy & scheduling…
Yup – nailed it – June 17-19, making spoons & hewn bowls. http://www.woodwrightschool.com/spoon-carving-w-peter-f/
Maybe the barred owl will still be around…might be too late again!
UPDATE = this class filled quicker than I ever could have imagined. Roy & I traded notes about adding a second class before this one (how can it be 2nd, if it’s before this one? I don’t know, but it is) …check with him – it’s not on the website yet, but will be soon, I bet. So same idea, but June 14-16.
August 29th & 30th, back in Maine (I still haven’t moved there yet. What’s taking me so long?) at Lie-Nielsen for a new class in making hewn bowls…adze, hatchet, gouges – great fun.
May 16, in Plymouth Massachusetts, a one-day class on splitting & riving.This is part of the newly-formed Plymouth CRAFT (Center for Restoration Arts and Forgotten Trades) – this one I’ll be co-instructor with my friend Rick McKee – you know, he wrote that great blog the Riven Word (now disappeared into the ether) and currently writes https://blueoakblog.wordpress.com/ – Rick & I will show students how to “read” the log and split it apart with various end-products in mind; furniture parts, clapboards, fencing, etc.
