- sign up by Feb 28 –

We’ve been pretty excited around the shop as we come closer to the day that we’ll be taking our road-show over to the UK. It’ll be the farthest afield that we’ve brought a Grain board-building class yet, and though it’s a helluva long way to go, we’re sure it’ll be worth it.

We had some challenges as we morphed a class normally held in the comfort of our own shop to a roaming operation. Chief among them was how to provide the same quality of experience people have gotten year after year in Maine, even though we may be in someone else’s neighborhood. The half-dozen travel classes we’ve done around the US have given us a chance to really dial it all in. Plus – lucky for us – in Great Britain we have the guys at Fyne Boat Kits. They’ll be making all the shaping stands, rocker tables, and framesets right there at their shop in the English Lake District where the class is to be held. Since they’ve been supplying our European customers with Grain HomeGrown Kits for almost a year now, we can be sure that everything will be first rate and just as if we did it ourselves. They’ll also be sourcing local woods for the boards which has always been a high priority for us.

Check the Fyne site soon, but get registered early – if the class isn’t full by the end of February, we may not be able to have it… We gotta get tickets soon! It’s coming fast – April 21 to 27, so if you’re thinking about it, do it!

For any colonials who’d consider making the hop across the pond for this unique experience, let us know – we’ll send you our flight info… if we get on the same trans-Atlantic, the first beverage service is on us!
