Maine Coast Workshop (Camden, ME) 2022 classes


Well-known member

  Hello folks,
  We've got some wonderful workshops this summer & fall, focusing on traditional furniture with a heavy emphasis on period carving. 

Mike Pekovich will be teaching a hand tool class in May. 
SAPFM Cartouche winners Al Breed and Ray Journigan conducting period carving classes.

Maine Coast Workshop | Woodworking School

Here's the list:
    Florida based Alexander Grabovetskiy teaching classical woodcarving (June 13-17, 2022).  Alex will also be returning in August (8-12) for a Grinling Gibbons carving workshop.  Alex has won many awards.  He was recently featured in Fine Woodworking Magazine (Nov/Dec. 2022)
  Al Breed will be teaching “Carving in the Newport style” on July 11-15, 2022.  Based in NH, Al is the premier maker and expert on 18th century Newport, RI furniture.
  VA Beach period furniture maker, Ray Journigan, will be coming back in 2022 (September 19-24) to teach “Carving for 18th Century Furniture”.  Ray is also a winner of the SAPFM Cartouche award and loves working with students of all levels.  Pieces we will be carving will cover much of what you would find on a high style Philadelphia highboy including an elaborate Chippendale acanthus and shell design on a drawer front, flame finials, rosettes, pineapples, and given time, a baroque apron relief.

If there’s enough interest, we also have the potential for a Bellamy eagle class taught by myself:  Bellamy Eagles | William Francis Brown
Other classes will depend on enough student interest.  These include a fanback windsor chair with Shawn Murphy, and a Shaker ladderback chair with David Douyard.    Let me know what else you’d like to see!
  We also are now soliciting applicants for any young folk (high school or college age roughly) who might wish a tuition scholarship....Scholarship Program | Maine Coast Workshop
