2021 Timber Framing Workshop Schedule Now Set
Intro Timber Framing, June 21-26, 2021
Advanced Timber Framing, June 28- July 3, 2021

ReciprocalFrameFoxMaple72IMG3070The 2021 Intro & Advanced TF workshops series at Fox Maple, in Brownfield, Maine have now been posted. If you've ever wanted to take part in what has become the longest running timber framing program on the planet, we invite you to register today to reserve your spot. 

As usual, we will be offering the Introductory and Advanced Timber Framing courses back-to-back. This is the best way to get the full flavor of timber framing essentials, allowing one to gain the knowledge and confidence to enter the trade professionally or to build your own timber frame home. 

 We look forward to meeting and to working with all of the new students, as well as returning students, in 2021.

Vive Jean-Claude
