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.

Frame to Finish: Mobile Free Pantry Project

Wall/floor framing and sheathing: May 27th & 28th

Urban Farm Fermentory, Portland, Maine

Kolbert Building, Portland, Maine 


BIPOC and LGBTQ+ encouraged to register!

We're excited to announce our Mobile Free Pantry collaboration course hosted at Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland over three weekends. The first weekend is May 27th/28th and participants will be learning about framing, layout and assembly. The second workshop is June 3rd/4th for rafter cutting, standing seam metal roofing, and proper window flashing and installation. The final workshop in this series will be June 17th/18th for siding, trim and door building. Participants will have the opportunity to work very closely with industry professionals to learn carpentry skills while helping address food scarcity among impoverished communities in Portland. The event will be hosted in the Urban Farm Fermentory parking lot, and at the Kolbert Building workshop on rain days.

The goals for the workshop are to serve the community, build useful frame to finish skills, work directly with industry professionals, and gain comfort attempting home projects or joining the trades. There are 8 spots available each weekend, so act fast! You do NOT have to take all of the workshops. 

All attendees must be 18 years or older.

Cost: $100 per weekend
