Country Workshops is in the process of closing down. Our summer tutorials are fully enrolled. At the CW Store, all tools are now sold out. We still have a full selection of books and DVDs. We are keeping our web site intact, as an archive and resource.
Our friends Kenneth and Angela Kortemeier are starting the Maine Coast Craft School. They are offering courses similar to Country Workshops' classes, and their store will offer a similar selection from the same makers.
Private Tutorials with Drew Langsner. Drew will be offering privately arranged tutorials limited to 1-2 students. Possibilities include: carving bowls and spoons, ladderback, and rustic Windsor chair making. 1-5 days. The dates are mutually decided, beginning spring 2018. Drew is also open to teaching at other venues when the circumstances are particularly interesting. Email if you have a proposal or question. Website: DrewLangsner.com
Country Workshops tutorial tuition includes your private room and all meals. We have 2 rooms located in the loft just above the workshop, and 2 rooms in our Guest Cabin -- approximately 75 feet from the workshop. Summer temperatures usually vary between 55 and 85 degrees.
Extra guests are welcome when accommodations are available. The cost is $15/night in a shared room. Guest meal charges are: breakfast $10, lunch $15, supper $20.
Most of our students drive to Country Workshops. If youíre flying, the closest airports are Asheville, NC; Tri-Cities (Bristol), TN; and Knoxville, TN. Airport pickups can often be arranged with other class members who will be driving by one of these airports on their way to Country Workshops.
Internet and Phone Access
Wi-fi for e-mail is available in the workshop and dining room. Our satellite broadband system has very limited download capacity, so streaming and other web-based uses are not appropriate.
