Welcome and mission


My early years as a classical oboist involved teaching as well as playing music. At one point during my time as a cabinetmaker, a friend asked if I had ever considered teaching woodworking as well. She felt that many women might want to learn these skills—from another woman. And so my woodworking teaching began as an experiment through high-school, adult-education classes. And since 1988, I’ve been running my own woodworking school here at my studio in Westminster West, Vermont. The energy and enthusiasm of the women who have come here to learn continues to sustain me along the path of my own woodworking journey as I strive to create a supportive learning environment for others.
