Heartwood is hosting a 5-day cruck framing course May 20–24, 2019, taught by Jack Sobon and Neil Godden. Cruck frames use large “bookmatched” curved timbers to transfer the weight of the roof directly down to the foot of the posts. It is a traditional method found mainly in the Welsh Borderlands in Britain; here in Berkshire County we have more crucks than anywhere else in North America. They are quite beautiful with the arches soaring overhead, and exciting to build as the scribed crucks take shape.

We urge you to register as soon as possible for this course if you are interested.
