This class moves students from straight-stave to tapered stave coopering. Water-tight coopering is the most difficult form of coopering. Students learn to make bent staves and assemble them into traditional barrels. In this class, each student will complete a 5 gallon pin keg made with white oak. Coopering Buckets or Piggins is a prerequisite unless student has substantial coopering experience. The June class must have at least 8 students enrolled before the registration for August class is opened.
