Learn Old Fashioned Woodworking this summer at Hallockville!

Enjoy a fun and relaxing two-hour exploration of the woodworking style known as "Greenwoodworking." Utilize wood straight from the log to make everyday utensils, tools and furniture in a centuries-old tradition. Join Tom Barry and step back in time to split wood from the log, shape it on a traditional shavehorse and complete projects on a beautifully-simple and functional foot-powered springpole lathe. Workshop participants will make several handmade items and leave with a sense of accomplishment that our ancestors enjoyed as the simple chores of everyday life. Workshop fee of $35 includes all tools, instruction and materials. Ages 12 and up. Limited space in each workshop; advance registration is required. Call 631-298-5292 or email hallockv@optonline.net to register for these workshops:
