Thomas Wittman with over 30 years of experience as a craftsman, farmer and teacher, will share his knowledge on carpentry designed for gardens. From basic trellises, gazebos, and benches all the way up to fences, planter boxes, and arbors, you'll learn from a master carpenter who has built many of the structures at the renowned UCSC Farm and Garden. Ideas, formulas and plans will be explained in a manner that is easily absorbed by the beginning builder. Basic tools and joinery will be discussed along with a host of simple and complex ideas that will inspire you to take on the challenge of creating beauty in form and function in the garden setting. We will give a demo on building garden beds on site. This class is meant for beginners--if you already have carpentry experience, this class may not be for you.
We particularly welcome women to participate in this workshop. We will demystify basic carpentry procedures and get some tools in your hands!
