Coopering Butterchurns - 446

Class of 2009

The butterchurn design is a graceful and classic coopered vessel. In this class, you split and shape staves and form the churn, then shave and shape the dasher and cover. Those who have taken Coopering - 445 can build on their techniques and skills. Build a beautiful and useful addition to your kitchen collection. Although not a firm prerequesite, it is recommended that new students take Coopering - 445 for experience. Please call for advice if unsure. Product: butterchurn.


"Chuck Andrews is an excellent instructor. His expertise and ability to teach make the class very beneficial. All aspects of the class were addressed thoroughly, and all of my questions were answered. Peter's insight on the historical aspects of coopering was much appreciated. The facilities are great. The woodshop is fully outfitted with a good set of hand tools and work benches. The tools provided are sharp and a pleasure to use. The class schedule was a challenge without being too much. I will be back for more classes!" -student, 2009
