Cruck Framing added to 2016 schedule

We are adding a 5-day Cruck Framing course from May 16–20; the frame will be similar to the one shown below built in 2011. Cruck frames use large “bookmatched” curved timbers to transfer the weight of the roof directly down to the foot of the posts. It is a traditional method found mainly in the Welsh Borderlands in Britain; here in Berkshire County we have more crucks than anywhere else in North America. They are quite beautiful with the arches soaring overhead, and exciting to build as the scribed crucks take shape.

Instructors: Jack Sobon and Neil Godden
We urge you to register as soon as possible
for this course if you are interested.
