When we started the Port Townsend School of Woodworking we always planned to start a longer intensive course at the School. In the last year we've had a lot of inquiries about "apprenticeships", "journeyman" classes and longer courses that will build a solid foundation of woodworking skills.
We're heeding those who asked and we're proud to offer our Foundation Course starting in January 2011. This is a three month / twelve week class where we steadily build your skills before switching into a final project class. The final project can be in any of three areas: Furniture Making, Cabinet Making or Building a Gypsy Wagon.
You can read a fuller description here.
This is a really exciting development and we hope you'll be tempted to join us next year.
