The OMP is a two year immersion. We meet weekly for three semesters each year for lectures, videos, and discussions. Students must have their own shop to work from and a camera and microphone set up to participate on Zoom. This program takes on all levels but true beginners. Anyone with the gumption to deepen their understanding of the craft and commit to building great work.
Design topics range from the influence of Charles Mackintosh to 14th century Renaissance furniture to Modernist design icons. We cover hand and power tool use, drawer and case construction, hand cut dovetails, coopering and business practice. Over these two years folks design and build 11 pieces of work. Pieces range from a dovetail box to a chair and a final Signature Piece with three drawers. Please contact the Studio for a prospectus. There are no scholarships currently available.
