Timber Framing

Course Code: ARTS0298

Students must attend the Timber Framing - Introduction to Design Workshop prior to taking this course.
Learn the age-old craft of building with heavy timber using mortise and tenon wood joinery and oak pegs. This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to timber frame design. Instruction on wood selection, tool use and methods for enclosing the frame will be provided. Reference to books, slides, videos and optional participation in after-school tours will provide you with exposure to different timber frame structures and techniques. This is a hands-on course where you will lay out and cut the joinery for a complete frame, assemble it and end the week with a good old-fashioned 'barn raising'.
