This intensive week-long workshop is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in wood shop safety and the proper use of hand tools while make a small stool. Students will learn to use quintessential hand tools, such as hand planes, spoke shaves, handsaws, and chisels. Students will also learn fundamental joinery such as a wedged through tenon, a beautiful and strong joint. This class will provide you with the confidence and foundational knowledge to jump-start your woodworking skills. Each student will build a small stool to take home at the end of the week.
*Pre-College Workshops begin Monday morning at 9am, and then 10am for each day after. Each morning, Tues-Fri, 9am-10am is designed as an optional "Open Studio" time for students to work on their projects. The Teaching Instructor will be present to prep and set up and available for guidance and questions. The workshop will then formally begin at 10am Tues-Friday.
