Timber framers return to North Idaho
Artisans from around the world will meet in Coeur d'Alene this month as timber frame craftsmen from the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia visit The Coeur d'Alene Resort. The artisans will examine the history of and demonstrate skills in traditional post-and-beam building. This will be the second time The Resort has hosted the event.
This year the show will be held April 22-25.
The Timber Framers Guild is an international educational organization of 1,500 members dedicated to preserving and promoting the craft of timber framing, which uses large wood beams connected by wooden, pegged joinery.
This 25th annual Western Conference will feature Chinese woodworker, author and architect Ma Bing-jian and architect Johnpaul Jones, who will speak on Northwest Native American wooden art and architecture.
The conference will also include presentations for architects and engineers, a business track, demonstrations by blacksmiths and hewers, hands-on work with heavy timber construction and a children's timber framing workshop. More than 25 presenters are on the schedule, along with a Trade Fair, Benefit Auction and Book Store.
The public is invited to the events; advance registration and a fee are required to attend the conference.
