Semester-based furniture making education
The Vermont Woodworking School Immersion Program is a full-time furniture design and woodworking education program. We accept new students for our Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters throughout the year. Students may enroll for a minimum of 9 weeks and can stay for up to 2½ academic years.
Our students spend full days in the woodshop with access to the guidance of professional furniture-makers and woodworkers. Over four semesters, students learn the basics and then take on increasingly challenging woodworking and furniture-making projects of their own design.
We're a school full of creative thinkers, hard workers, designers and builders, and people devoted to the challenging and fulfilling pursuit of woodworking. Join us if you've always dreamed of building a life around craft.
One- to four-day classes focusing on a project or technique
Workshops at the Vermont Woodworking School are great for beginners or hobbyists looking to brush up their knowledge of shop safety or a specific technique. Take a weekend to learn some hand-cut joinery or spend four days in the shop making a Shaker-style hall table.
