The Intensives are blocks of classes that take place over a two, three or four week period.  They enable you to really immerse yourself and focus on rapid woodworking skill acquisition.  Some of the intensive are arrange to have a few days, sometimes a week of non instruction time, allowing you to work independently while still under supervision, we have found that for some students “doing it by themselves” helps to cement the knowledge they have been covering during the class and at the same time highlights areas they want to go back and work on with the instructor.  During the intensives you will have your own bench for the duration and additional time with the experienced shop assistants.
