2023 Timber Framing Workshop Now Set
Intro Timber Framing, July 17-22, 2023
Advanced Timber Framing, July 24-29, 2023

ReciprocalFrameFoxMaple72IMG3070If 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 in the Summer 2023 Workshop Series, 

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 any returning students in 2023.

Vive Jean-Claude
