Live woodworking demos, live music, food and tool yard sale at open house.

Newmarket, NH, June 1, 2016 – Homestead Woodworking School is hosting an open house celebration  to honor their 20 years of sharing the love of hands-on learning.

On the afternoon of June 26, 2016  from 3 to 6 p.m., the seacoast school will host past and present students, teachers, friends, family and community members. Highlights of the day include live demos of wood finishing by Gary Wood, chain saw carving by Kevin Gelinas, wood turning by Christopher and Wayne Belair and hand cut dove tails and a two-man saw cutting competition. Additionally, former student-turned luthier-John Whiteside and some of his guitar making students will entertain with live music and the school will provide plenty of food and drink.

Past and current students and teachers are encouraged to bring their finished projects they’ve built for display in an “instant gallery.”

All open house attendees are welcome to bring unused, or underused tools and woodworking items they no longer need to sell in a “yard sale.” There will be no charge for tables but please contact the school ahead of time to determine how much space is needed.

Community members are encouraged to visit the 20-year anniversary open house on June 26, 2016 from 3 – 6 p.m. at 52 Bald Hill Road Newmarket, NH.
