Woodshop Workshops are 2-week classes that are designed to do smaller projects to try out some of our woodshop equipment.  There are two woodshop workshops: Themed Woodcraft on Tuesdays and Woodturning on Thursdays.   Workshops take place for 2 weeks following the Intro and Advanced Woodshop classes. These workshop projects are perfect for homemade gifts or home décor.  All supplies are included. No experience is necessary.  

In the Themed Woodcraft Workshop, participants will learn how to make theme-based wood-crafted projects, such as cutting boards, serving trays, and serving platters. Themed Woodcraft takes a maximum of 10 students.

The Woodturning Workshop will teach you how to use a lathe woodturning machine to make projects such as bowls, holiday decorations, and candlesticks.  Woodturning takes only 4 participants so sign up early!
