Weekend with George Walker

What a delight - we've had the pleasure of George Walker's company this week.

George and Jim Tolpin have spent a lot of time deep in discussion about their new book. From the hints and conversations I've had with them both - its clear that the book will provoke the woodworker to look hard at design as a skill (not an innate talent) that can be learnt, practiced and developed.

And then the class happened.....

These folks are converted (see slideshow below))! My thanks to them all for the enthusiasm, great ideas, great conversation!

  1. I wish I could have made it to this class! I hope George will be coming back, to teach another class.


  2. Just finished having coffee with George. We're talking about a course in October 2012 - when he and Jim have finished the book and it may be published.

    We'll build on what we've learnt from this course - hopefully to include build maquettes (small scale models). Watch the school's website.

  3. Very cool. I'll keep an eye out for the 2012 class schedule.
