About the Class or Event
One Thursday, 5:30-9:00 PM
Meets March 31, In Woodshop
Skill Level: All
In this one evening workshop, you will be introduced to the art of frame making. You will view and discuss examples of frames crafted by professional woodworkers, and watch live demonstrations of tools. Then, you will try your hand at frame making yourself by creating one (or more!) frames. This class would be ideal for painters or photographers looking to make their own wooden frames for their work. There will be personalized individual instruction, so whether you have some experience making frames already, or have never worked with wood before, this workshop is for you.
The instructor recommends that students either bring their old frames, or purchase molded grooved board if they have a specific design in mind. He is available for consultation on materials for the class anytime via phone (617-386-9682).
About the instructor:
Palo Coleman grew up unfettered in Northern California where he spent a lot of time in the woods taught himself building skills and developed an interest in small-scale living. Now living with his wife and family in Cambridge, he continues to experiment in myriad woodworking techniques and is a tiny-house builder. Recent projects include a living playground in Waitsfield, Vermont’s elementary school; making a vertical garden system; constructing medieval games for the Fuller Craft Museum; and developing a portable studio with Japanese-wood siding.
