Timber Framing Workshops with Henry Russell 


5-day camp @ The Hillyfield, South Devon.

SEPT. 2019: 2nd – 6th & 9th to 13th

A rare opportunity to study with Henry Russell, highly regarded teacher & repository of timber frame knowledge with 20yrs+ experience.

Each 5-day course aims to cover
the basics of structural traditional timber framing using a variety of different timber species and a range of wonderful hand tools on a live-build project at The Hillyfield woodland farm on Dartmoor.

  • Scarfing timbers together longitudinally
  • Accurate marking of timbers, mortice and tenon, and lap joints
  • Layout over a drawing
  • Traditional plumb-bobbing
  • Oak peg making and more…
  • The aim is to achieve some wall-frame and also construct an 8m span King-post to collar sling brace truss using oak and larch.

We will be looking at historic timbers and timber framing history during the course and having a jolly good time.
Suitable for any level experience and ability.
