GreenWood Wrights’Fest

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - April 25 @ 5:00 pm

GreenWood Wrights’Fest will host beginner and advanced workshops on green woodworking, including one about carving spoons. Some classes are designed for children (ages 10 – 14), including basic knife skills. The festival also includes demonstrations exploring the history and culture of green woodworking.

Professor Roy Underhill will enlighten on, “The Craftsmanship of Risk and Redemption as Green Woodworkers Save the World!” Roy will hold workshops on traditional timber frame joinery and expound upon his western saw wizardry.

Liesl Chatman will teach Kohlrosing, a Scandinavian tradition from the Viking era. Pronounced “coal-rose-ing,” it is a method of incising wood and dying, then rubbing the patterns with natural pigments and burnishing to create line drawings on wood.

Food trucks will be on site. You are welcome to bring your own food and dishware (washing station will be available). Well-behaved dogs on a leash will be permitted.
