Waterfall Arts Presents:

Introduction to Timber Framing with Raivo Vihman

timber frame

July 26 - 30 M-F 9 - 4 Age 18-Adult

52 Kingdom Road, Montville, Maine 04941

$210 tool list will be provided

Get ready to cut a frame! This will be a five-day introduction to the craft of timber framing in which we will build and erect a small timbered outbuilding to house a handmade cob oven. Students will develop an understanding of the structural parts of a frame, and build confidence with the layout and execution of timber joinery, walking away with the skills to build their own structure.

Raivo Vihman has been avidly studying and building wood and vernacular architecture all over North America and Europe since he cut his first house frame of timbers in 2000 in Freedom, Maine. Last winter he studied French techniques of drafting and timber building with the Compagnons in Angers, France.
