Timber Framing – Three Week Intensive (July 9 - 27)    Mon Jul 16 to Fri Jul 27, 2018, Peterborough, ON

Timber Framing – Three Week Intensive

Dates: July 16 – 27, 2018

Timber framing is an ancient craft with plenty of modern applications, and therein lies its ongoing appeal. Traditional wood joinery is as relevant today as it was centuries ago. In this timber framing workshop you will learn all stages of timber framing, from initial design and layout, through cutting joints, to assembling a finished frame.

Instructor Dawson Willsey, an experienced timber framer, will guide you through the entire timber framing process. Whether you are completely new to the craft or have had some timber framing experience, this course will expand your skills and give you the confidence to attempt your own timber framing project.

Small group learning will afford lots of time to develop skills and confidence, ask questions and discuss ideas. There will be plenty of time to practice with tools and to become familiar with terminology. You’ll learn about tool safety and sharpening, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, making sketches for projects and choosing non-toxic, healthy finishes.

This timber framing workshop is the ideal opportunity to learn the entire process from start to finish!

All participants will be expected to have their own safety boots and hard hats.
