On Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6, 1999 North Bennet
Street School will host its annual Open House.  With full-time
programs in Bookbinding, Cabinet & Furniture Making, Carpentry,
Preservation Carpentry, Jewelry Making & Repair, Locksmithing, Piano
Technology, and Violin Making & Restoration, the school models its
classes after traditional apprenticeship training and is one of few
institutions in the country devoted to fine craftsmanship training.

Visitors to the North Bennet Street School Open House will observe
work in progress and have the opportunity to talk directly with
students and instructors.  This behind-the-scenes look at an
education in craftsmanship will interest people in the trades as
well as those exploring new career options. The event provides an
ideal opportunity for anyone who might be interested in
commissioning custom work or who would like to meet established and
emerging artisans.  Hobbyists, professionals and individuals with an
appreciation for fine craftsmanship are invited.

North Bennet Street School has operated since 1881 in the North End
of Boston, and has become increasingly well-known throughout the
country and the world for the quality of its training programs.  One
of the first institutions in the United States to specialize in
vocational education, the school has built a solid reputation for
fostering graduates with a commitment to the highest standards of
hand craftsmanship.

In addition to its eight full-time programs short-term workshops are
offered at North Bennet Street on Saturdays, in the evenings, and
during the summer.  Course offerings change each term and include
specialized topics relating to the school's full-time curricula
including musical instrument technology, bookbinding and woodworking

North Bennet Street School is located at 39 North Bennet Street in
the North End of Boston and can be reached by public transportation.
Parking is available at local garages.  The School is wheelchair
accessible. Admission to the Open House is free.
