The cultivation and building of a relationship with one’s material is fundamental to making as well as good design. In this 4-week certificate program students will learn how to respond to wood, while gaining an in depth knowledge of crafting furniture and objects out of green wood harvested from the woods. Students will develop skills and techniques focused on the use of hand tools which is fundamental to the historical processes and traditions of green woodworking. Each week is designed to teach students how to confidently and passionately approach woodworking from a more holistic perspective via harvesting one’s own material, designing pieces, and gaining the skills to execute those ideas in the woodshop.
