Our introduction to woodwork class provides a longer term opportunity to learn essential techniques and build on exisiting and new skills learned. Over an 8 week block of 3 hour classes, you will learn the basics of what is required to construct a piece of furniture, and then have the opportunity to move to an open class where you can work on a project of your own. You will learn to become familiar with what is required to take a lifeless board of timber and with preparation, joinery and finishing skills developed throughout the course, turn it into a functional, object.

The fee for this class is $849 and includes required materials, workshop access and instruction.
