Join the fine folk at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking on December 11th for a celebration of their First Full Year.
Tim Lawson of the School says:
had a lot of fun getting the School up and running. More importantly
we've really enjoyed working with our students and getting to know
them. Plus when we stand back and scratch our heads (not a pretty
sight) we are kind of gobsmacked (a fine old British expression) at the
great reception we have received.
had a whirlwind first year. Starting from a raw building filled with
paint cans we have a functioning class / bench room and machine room.
had around 200 students attending a mixture of 1-5 day classes in 2008.
Our lecture series has drawn up to 50 people on a Thursday evening.
We've even had folks staying at the park for some of the longer
courses. We've drawn students from the East Coast, Arizona, Kansas,
Florida, California, Switzerland and Canada.
current course schedule for 2009 has us running classes for about 40
weeks next year – which if fully enrolled would have more than 450
students attend the school.
We're expanding our faculty to
include nationally renowned woodworkers from around Puget Sound, and
from California and New Hampshire."
They will open their doors at 5:00pm. Please come and join them–refreshments provided!
