Furniture-making Workshops at Sutherland Steam Mill

Sutherland Steam Mill Museum in Denmark, Colchester Co., near Tatamagouche, will host woodworking workshops this summer with renowned Nova Scotia furniture maker Jonathan Otter.

For the second year, the museum is offering a variety of workshops that are almost entirely hands-on using hand tools and traditional methods.

“Sutherland Steam Mill is an excellent backdrop to share the experience of furniture making with Nova Scotians who want to explore their creative nature through such a beautiful and functional art form,” said Mr. Otter. “It is a pleasure to teach people new skills to help them work on projects of their own.”

The first workshop is Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students can take their projects home when they are done.

“The work of artisans contributes to our culture as Nova Scotians,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Tony Ince. “The workshops at Sutherland Steam Mill are an excellent opportunity to learn an interesting skill from an award-winning artisan.”

Sutherland Steam Mill Museum is located at 3169 Highway 326, Denmark. For details and a complete list of courses go to http://sutherlandsteammill.novascotia.ca/woodworking-workshops-jonathan-otter
