Heartwood’s 2013 workshop schedule is now online here
One of our courses makes a great Christmas surprise

Our upcoming 36th season includes our established collection of timber framing, woodworking and housebuilding courses, and we’re offering a few for the first time.
The new “Build Your Own” series offers workshops where you take home your project, whether it be a workbench, Windsor Chair, shavehorse, pole lathe or heirloom toolchest. In our long-running Cabinetmaking course, each student creates their own Shaker-style floor cabinet. Debuting this year will be the Advanced Concrete Countertops course involving casting multi-dimensional objects such as sinks and tubs, and we’re bringing back our challenging housed-stringer Stairbuilding course.
In response to suggestions from our graduates, we’re offering some weekend (Saturday & Sunday) workshops for the first time, and have condensed our popular Timber Frame Design and Joinery Decisions course to three days instead of five to make it easier for some folks to attend.
It’s another full season at Heartwood, with more courses than ever, and we hope you’ll find something you like and will join us in the beautiful Berkshires!
