The West River Community Project is partnering with TERRA Collaborative to offer an exciting opportunity for women and under-represented individuals who are interested in challenging themselves and learning new hands-on building skills. This workshop is focused on skill building for women and other individuals who may have not had the exposure to hands-on learning. Come learn the fundamentals of timber frame design and construction. Help us cut and raise the new community pizza pavilion for the West River Community Project, which supports local farmers and entrepreneurs, and seeks to improve lives and strengthen the community as a whole. Stay tuned for an earthen wood-fired oven building workshop later in the fall to take place under the newly built pavilion. Workshop is limited in size. Register TODAY!

Timber Framing (July 6 - 12)
This intensive seven-day workshop will lead you through square rule timber frame joinery and raise a medium-sized community pavilion behind the West Townshend Country Store. The final day will include the raising of the structure and community celebration. The cost of this workshop is $600 per person. Lunch is provided throughout the workshop, and housing will be made available for out-of-town participants for an additional nominal fee. Scholarships are available. Don't miss this once in a life time opportunity. No previous experience required!

About your instructors & TERRA Collaborative:
Liz Johndrow has been a hands-on learner all of her life. In 2004, with an earlier background in carpentry, she began to focus on natural and earthen construction: straw bale houses and timber framing, natural plasters and earthen floors, and cob and adobe construction. She founded her business, Earthen Endeavors Natural Building, in 2009 and launched TERRA Collaborative in 2014, formalizing the work she had been doing in Nicaragua since 2011. Liz works on homeowner building projects large and small and teaches natural material-based building skills in workshops and apprenticeships throughout the US and Central America.

Ariel Burns splits her work life between timber framing and carpentry in Central Maine and joining Liz on most plaster projects and teaching opportunities with TERRA.
