This Autumn Grace Design will begin running small, intimate timber framing workshops in West Wicklow. Participants will learn methods of designing, marking and cutting the handmade joints which lie at the heart of our work. A range of techniques will be demonstrated and taught using hand, power and specialist tools. Along the way we will discuss how to use wood in Irelands damp climate to ensure strong, durable and beautiful structures, choosing the right sized beams for the job and how to work in harmony with the nature of green wood.
