New! Historic Preservation Woodworking and Building Techniques – In-Person, Offsite
Adults: Ages 18+
Through a combination of site visits to buildings of various periods, shop demonstrations, lecture and hands on work with tools, this course will explore the changes in technology, and the corresponding development of building design. Starting with timber framing participants will explore basic assembly techniques, and how assembly methods developed overtime. Methods for conservation of historic windows will be explored. Participants will use tools from as far back as the eighteenth century. We will explore the marks these tools leave and how they can be used to help us read the history of a building. These class sessions will be over 10 weeks for a total of 28 hours. Instructor-Bruce MacDonald.
