Daily Schedule at the Charleston Woodworking School

A typical day for students includes a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on experience, and personalized learning. We believe each student’s education is maximized by working at their own pace, in conjunction with a structured learning environment.  Each student is assigned their own personal workbench. Work interaction between students is highly encouraged.
Several unique disciplines of woodworking are incorporated into each course.  Gilding, antique restoration and repair, and carving techniques are all part of the advanced curriculum.
