What’s the best way to improve your woodworking skills? Practice, of course! But if you’re ready to make a quantum leap, there’s no better way than taking a class at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. It’s not only one of the nation’s top woodworking schools, but also enjoys an especially picturesque location in the coastal town of Rockport, Maine.
The Center’s schedule offers 27 one- and two-week summer workshops in furniture making and design, turning, carving, and finishing for all skill levels. Courses are taught by a virtual who’s who of outstanding professional woodworkers from across the nation and around the world. Still ahead this summer are courses in basic woodworking with Peter Korn, carving with Chris Pye, a hand tools skill-builder with Garrett Hack, finishing with Teri Masaschi, and much more.
If a summer workshop leaves you anxious to dive in deeper, you can always head back for a Twelve-week Intensive in furniture making beginning in October. The Intensive is geared toward individuals considering furniture making as a profession, as well as those on sabbatical from their present career or simply pursuing woodworking as a life-enhancing skill.
For more information and to see the full schedule, visit the Center’s website at www.woodschool.org, or contact them directly at 207-594-5611 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Woodworking with experts, famously delicious sea creatures and some of the country’s most beautiful surroundings – what beats that?
