Forest to Furniture with the Shelburne Craft School
Shelburne Farms is home to 400 acres of northern hardwood stands and softwood plantations of pine and spruce. Throughout the year, we cultivate our community knowledge of environmental forestry, including this class designed to give you the chance bring a piece of the Farm home.
Throughout the weekend, you’ll build a rustic table or bench out of a piece of wood from a tree grown on the Farm. Begin your experience by exploring and learning about the source of your table — the Shelburne Farms forest. Select your wood and learn how to craft it into a personalized table or bench for your home. Lessons will cover handtools, power tools, and the uses of oil and water-based finishes. Prior woodworking experience is helpful, but not necessary.
