Woodworking & Carving Classes taught  by world-class instructors

                      OUR CLASSES

The Maine Coast Workshop is a small woodworking school located in the scenic coastal community of Camden, Maine, nestled in a scenic harbour on the Penobscot Bay. Our woodworking school focuses on traditional hand tool techniques taught by some of the most well-respected woodworking instructors in the world. Students of all abilities come to take woodworking & wood carving classes.  You'll enjoy wonderful camaraderie, a supportive environment, and you'll advance your skills more in one week than years on your own.

I want to let you know what steps we are taking to minimize the threat of the virus spreading and to ease your concerns.


  • All classes will be limited in size.  Most will be 6-8 max. but as small as 5.

  • All classes are fully refundable if cancelled
