US Bodger's Ball and Greenwood Gathering June 28-30

This 2.5 day event will bring bodgers and other greenwood artists together to share their skills, experiences, and passion for woodworking on shave horses and pole lathes. Whether you're a beginner or expert woodworker, or, if you just want to expand your knowledge of green woodworking, this gathering is for you. You will enjoy a leisurely weekend with fellow woodworking enthusiasts as they share their projects, lessons they've learned, and ideas for creating heirloom-quality art. Bring your projects, photos, ideas, and questions.

Additional woodworking classes taught by professional bodgers and greenwood experts (including Fred Livesay) will be available at an added cost. (Watch the

Driftless Folk School website for further information as it becomes available.)

Coffee and pastries will be provided each morning, lunch is on your own (available at event for $8), and potluck dinner will be shared on Saturday evening.

Short Description

This two and a half day gathering for bodgers and green woodworkers will provide inspiration and learning opportunities for beginners and experts alike.

If you have a shaving horse, pole lathe, or a project in process, bring it along to work on, or just join us to learn more about woodturning, chair making, and other green woodworking art,
