With that in mind, here is my teaching schedule as it stands now. There won't be a lot of classes for me this year, frankly, I feel like I've kinda earned a break. But, I am excited for the classes that I am teaching so here are the details. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-563-1425 to register or if you have any questions.
Early March (exact date to be set)
Balloon Back side chair
3 student class one opening remains) taught at my shop in Sterling
6 day class, tuition $1400
Don't be fooled by the simple looking side chair, it has plenty to challenge new and even seasoned makers looking to raise their skill level. I have taught this class a number of times recently and am convinced that the students learn more, make a better chair and have more fun doing it rather than tackling an armchair. For a 6 day class, armchairs are alright, but the extra time producing twice as many spindles eats into the time for indepth instruction and skill building
All classes that I host require a $250 deposit to hold the spot. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the classes.
April 20th in Greenville, SC at the shop of Caleb James
Fan Back Side Chair
6 students/ 6 day class, tuition $1300
I'm very excited to team up with Caleb who will be hosting this class and hopefully many others in the future. I will be teaching the class with the help of Charlie Ryland who has been helping me in the shop and teaching with me for the last year.
May 4th in Greenville, SC at the shop of Caleb James
Balloon Back Side Chair
6 students/ 6 day class, tuition $1300 (two openings remain)
I will also be teaching more in house classes at the North Bennet Street School, The Sapfm in Ohio and a series of classes down under in Australia. I might schedule more as the year marches on, but as I said, a little breathing room, and chairmaking/ blogging time seems like just the thing for 2015!
