I did a search of LJ and it looks like several of us have referred to woodworking classes we have taken. I thought it might be an interesting forum thread for us to share the classes we have taken, where the classes were conducted, the teachers, etc.
I’ve attended the Marc Adams Woodworking School in Franklin, IN for four different week-long classes with the professional artisans he invites to teach at the school. The facility is outstanding, comfortable and well equipped. An outstanding lunch is served and is included in the tuition. Marc is an enthusiastic educator and artisan. I highly recommend the school. There is a high alumni return rate and sometimes it’s quite difficult to get into classes if you can’t forecast your calendar 6 to 8 months in advance. A portion of the $ I “make” from woodworking doing this and that for others goes into a savings account in hopes of saving up enough for travel expenses, room/board and tuition for a class each year. I’ve learned a lot from books and trial and error, but there’s nothing like watching and learning from a pro. www.marcadams.com
