Introduction to Chair Caning
January 14th, 2023, 9am-3pm

Welcoming All People to Carpentry

 

BIPOC and LGBTQ+ encouraged to register!

WBT’s mission:

Our crew of instructors strive to provide a safe, accessible, inviting and collaborative environment for anyone interested in learning the confident operation of power and hand tools. We will empower participants to tackle carpentry projects from initial conception to planning, material acquisition, and construction. By building together we encourage one another to feel capable of joining the trades, to develop skills for self-reliance and sustainability, and to rely on the communities that grow out of these workshops for support in our future endeavors.

We're excited to announce our Introduction to Shelf Building course hosted at Opus One Studio in Falmouth on Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th. This workshop will teach participants how to mill wood for their projects, assemble a simple and refined shelf unit, and apply veneer to plywood. The event will be hosted in a full woodworking shop where participants can experience what shop work is like.

 

The goals for the workshop are to try a variety of shop tools to assemble a beautiful and sturdy piece of walnut furniture. 

 

All attendees must be 18+ to participate.

Cost: $125 (scholarships available upon request)

This workshop is currently full -- please email Anna at 12alheath(at)gmail(dot)com to be added to the waitlist!

 

Check back for future workshops!

History: In the fall of 2020, CEBE partnered with a local contractor, Maine Passive House, to run an introduction to carpentry workshop for women called She Built This. During our planning process, we received feedback that our event description and name could be perceived as exclusive to a number of communities we wish to welcome to the trades through these workshops. In the interest of embodying the driving force of encouraging diversity in the trades, we began a rebranding process. Through the hard work of our past participants and other community members, we have renamed these workshops, "We Built This."

We're excited to announce our Introduction to Chair Caning workshop taught by Patty Morini on January 14th. The goals for the workshop are to learn intricate caning techniques and help you revitalize the chair that has been sitting forgotten in disrepair. We have 6 spots, but we encourage you to sign up with a partner, child (12+) or friend.

 

Caning materials are provided but you must bring your own chair.

Cost: $65 per person or $100 for a pair working on the same chair (scholarships available upon request)

This workshop will take place at the Maine Passive House Barn in Bryant Pond.
