Taking Timber Framing Further - 3 day course


Practical  course working in a small group to progress your timber framing skills. The 'practice piece' is the reinstatement of a 1580 timber frame. Some carpentry experience is needed. These three days are perfect for improvers, home-owners, conservation officers, architects, carpenters, builders, engineers, and anyone with a love of traditional timber framing who wants to get more involved in the practical carpentry of a big timber frame.

Signing up for this course at Orchard Barn will enable you to practice your skills and gain confidence whilst making a real difference to OBee CIC's restoration project. In March 2017 planning permission was granted for the reinstatement of the ruined Suffolk Long House at Orchard Barn.  The reinstatement in a 'like for like' manner uses local trees, traditional techniques, tools and a collaborative approach to working together.
