Timber Framing Introduction Weekend


the gate we'll be building

May 5-9 at "The Millbillies" White River Junction, Vermont

In this weekend workshop I'll introduce faeries and anyone else interested to the principles and practices of timber framing that we'll be using to build some of our structures at Faerie Camp Destiny. I'll be passing along what I learned at the Yestermorrow School of Design/Build last fall. We will make a simple two-posted information board/gate for the land that will be erected at the parking lot to help people arriving.
