Event description

Description

This workshop, great for a parent (or grandparent) and child, begins with learning to identify the trees commonly used by woodwrights; discusses how those trees were turned into lumber; examines the properties of different species of wood and the safe use of some basic hand tools. The workshop concludes with each team assembling and finishing a stool (which they get to take home) using no glue or metal fasteners!

Students should bring: Comfortable work clothes/shoes.

DATE: Saturday, July 29th, 2017

TIME: 9am-4pm (Lunch is not provided - students can buy lunch at the Shaker Box Lunch or can bring their own packed lunch.)

COST: $143 (Canterbury Shaker Village Member Team); $155 (Non-Member Team). Please purchase one ticket per team. A team consists of one adult and one child, 10 and older.

INSTRUCTOR: A lifelong interest in woodworking drew Dick Bennett to Canterbury Shaker Village in 2004. He has since served as a Museum Interpreter, Shaker Craft Demonstrator & Workshop Leader.
