One-day courses, 20th-24th March 2019
We are pleased to offer five one-day courses in treewrighting and timber-framing, from 20th to 24th March.
During this one-day course you will learn and develop skills in the making of a timber-frame using traditional tools and techniques. Teaching will be provided by highly experienced craftspeople in the Carpenters’ Fellowship. Learning will include a selection of the following, catering for a wide range of skill and experience :
- Axe jointing “treewrighting”
- Cleaving and dressing logs
- Converting timbers
- Shaping timbers
- Carving wooden tree nails
- Hewing logs by axe
Full training will be provided (no prior experience necessary). Although you will be working undercover, the course will be ‘outdoors’, so you will need to wear appropriate clothing.
Drinks and hot food will be provided, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overnight camping (bring your own tent) may be available on the site, or locally. More details will follow your booking.
A programme of evening events will also be on offer, including a range of talks on relevant craft and history, and social events.
You may book for more than one day. Please note that the activities will be physically demanding, so please take this into account before you sign up to all five days!
