For woodworkers of all skill levels looking to tackle a project with some help and guidance from an instructor.
You and up to two other woodworkers will have access to an instructor to guide your work. You will share the shop and tools with others, just as in any open studio.
This experience promises to build your woodworking knowledge while increasing confidence and skill using the woodshop. It is open to beginning woodworkers, as well as those with more experience who are seeking help with an unfamiliar process or a technical challenge, such as determining the most suitable joinery or designing a jig.
Ages 14 and up are welcome. (unless otherwise specified in class details, in which case omit)
