In Memory of Richard Bergen

Richard BergenIt is with great sadness that I tell you Richard Bergen lost his courageous battle with Leukemia on Thursday, April 9, 2020. He was a close personal friend for over 20 years and a huge asset in the school. Richard took dozens and dozens of classes over the years and assisted in most of the beginning classes for many years. Every studio photograph of the school furniture projects was done by Richard- free of charge!

Richard never hesitated to jump in and help out any time we needed it and was a huge help to hundreds of students..

He will be sorely missed.

Timber Framing Weekend with Northford Timberframers

153_timber_frame_class.jpg

We can’t believe it has been over 14 years since we started this class – and it has been a great time with George. We have had two different schools, a garden barn for AIDS research, work on two museums and nearly 250 different students! In this hands-on intensive class students will have the unique opportunity to learn and practice a blend of traditional and modern timber framing techniques. George will the thoroughly cover the history, planning, layout, tools and the different types of timber framed structures. Joint layout, cutting the mortise and tenon joints and hand-fitting with a slick are among the skills which students will put to use on the second day of the class. Students will each be working on a timber to be used in an actual timber frame structure. Tuition: $245.00 (including materials)

There is also a tour being offered for Monday, April 19. This is a special opportunity for everyone from class to see an actual timber frame shop and to tour more than a dozen barn projects in the Middletown area from the past 20 years. This is strongly recommended. Past students tell us the opportunity to visit and inspect so many different timber frame structures was the icing on the cake that really rounded off a great weekend. Fee for this is $50.00

Section 041710A: Saturday & Sunday, April 17 & 18, 2010  8:30am - 4:30pm (note- class will start at 8am on Sunday)

Section 041910C: Monday, April 19, 8:30am - 5:00pm
