Woodfinishing & Refinishing School, class, or training programs

Hi,
I'm looking for a Wood finishing & Refinishing school that also gets into the chemistry of wood finishes as well as the decorative aspects of coloring wood with chemicals & chemical dye, dye, stain, glaze, toners, and some faux finishes.
Thanks, Tom

Hi Tom,
Hi, The only college level accredited school for wood finishing in Minnesota is near Minneapolis. It's a 25 year old, 36 credit program that takes 9 months. I went through the program and can assure you that it is extremely challenging and leaves no stone unturned in the area of wood finishing.
It is probably the best school in the world for wood finishing, refinishing, spot repair, intense study of the chemistry of all finishing products, wood science, coloring, color theory, dyes, mordants, antique finishing techniques, multi-step finishes, faux techniques such as marbling, crackle lacquer, and wood graining. The program is also endorsed by the Smithsonian Institute and the instruction is world renown in the finishing industry.
It is offered by a state community college so the tuition is the same at the tuition for any other Minnesota state college course.
