2020 Timber Framing Workshops at Fox Maple Update

ReciprocalFrameFoxMaple72IMG3070Revised 2020 Workshop Schedule

Introductory Timber Framing, August 17-22
Advanced Timber Framing, August 24-29
Combined Intro & Advanced, August 17-29

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we have no reasonable choice other than to postpone the 2020 workshop series originally scheduled to begin June 1, 2020. The revised dates, to be taking place in August, are posted above.

While we are remaining confident that we will be beyond the critical stage of the pandemic by late August, we will continue to monitor the situation carefully so as to protect the health and well being of both our students and staff.

We are deeply committed to holding the 2020 workshop series, so if it seems necessary as we approach the revised dates in August, we will consider optional dates in September or October at that time. 2020 marks the 38th annual timber framing workshop series at Fox Maple without interruption, and we are committed to keeping the streak alive.

We hope everyone remains safe and well in these difficult times and hope you can join us in what promises to be another great Fox Maple Workshop experience in 2020.

Fox Maple Press
Joiners' Quarterly began publishing technical information about Timber Framing and Traditional Building in 1983.

Traditional timber framing and joinery techniques are at the core of the editorial content, but Natural Building is an important aspect because traditional building, by virtue of its pure and simple approach, is natural building. Timber, Straw, Wood & Clay; these were the traditional materials of the past, but today we think of them as Alternative Building. JQ offers insightful, technical articles about how to make traditional timber framing, combined with natural building systems, appropriate once again to build houses that will last for many generations. Craftsmanship is a key essential to any building endeavor. Articles in JQ and editorial content take this as the first essential, and present it as such. JQ Back issues offer a unique glimpse into the revival of timber framing through insightful articles.
