Welcoming All People to Carpentry
BIPOC and LGBTQ+ encouraged to register!
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.

8am on November 11th - 3pm on November 12th
Evans Notch Lodge, Gilead, Maine
We're excited to announce our first ever building retreat hosted at Evans Notch Lodge in Gilead on November 11th and 12th. This workshop will teach participants how to frame a deck/tent platform, practice safe use of a circular saw, and understand framing basics. We will also be offering food, lodging and a variety of guided activities for a relaxing and fun getaway in the Western Foothills. Accommodations at the Evans Notch Lodge will be free to all participants.
The goals for the workshop are to complete a tent platform for Evans Notch Lodge to use in the spring season and gather together as a community, surrounded by nature! There are 8 spots available, so act fast!
All attendees must be 18+ or 12+ and accompanied by a guardian.
Cost: $325/person or $585/pair
If the weather causes cancellations, we will reschedule for the spring and anyone already signed up will be offered the spots first.
