This year we are hosting Rory May of Dragon Forge Ltd in Pine, Colorado. You may visit his website here to see the style and quality of his work. Focusing on traditional joinery, this year’s project will be a collaborative park bench built for the Waynesboro Parks and Recreation Department. The work will be publicly displayed and used as an interactive artwork with the Waynesboro community. The design of the bench will remain undisclosed until the time of class to present participants with the maximum challenge. Students can expect to work on their skills of forging to accurate dimensions, design and engineering, and team building.
The class will be held in April 23 – 27, 2018. Class hours will be 8 to 5 Monday through Thursday, and 8 to 11 AM Friday. Mon – Thurs we can go later if needed. There will be goals to achieve each day and we will go longer if those goals are incomplete.
Tuition is $649 and includes materials and fuel as well as standard safety equipment. We have plenty of tools at the school, but if you have a favorite hammer, please bring it along.
