Woodshop Classes and Workshops 

ArtsConnect offers numerous woodshop classes in our newly renovated woodshop. Learn to use various equipment properly and efficiently. The Intro class uses a wide-range of equipment while learning to work safely. Once you have learned the basics, then take our Advanced class to learn more difficult techniques. 2-week Workshops give a sampling of how to use individual pieces of equipment.

ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED

In this 3-week class, Introduction to Woodshop teaches the basics of woodworking. Participants will learn how to use all of the equipment in the shop, as well as the important safety rules when using the equipment.  Participants will practice on the equipment and then make a small tote container with a handle. Our instructor will guide students through the steps of designing, building and finishing their projects. The goal of the class is for students to gain confidence on the equipment so that they can work independently in the shop. This class is a prerequisite for advanced woodshop and mandatory for using the woodshop during open studio time.  All Supplies are included.

Introduction to Woodshop is held on Wednesdays from 5:45 - 8:45 p.m. in our newly renovated woodshop at ArtsConnect Springfield Township Arts Center, 9158 Winton Rd, Building A, behind the fire station.

Instructor:  Kendall Glover

Kendall is a woodworker from Lincoln Heights. He is inspired to make functional items that celebrate and pay homage to the richness of the African American experience. He has produced whimsical and Afro-futurist items such as: cutting boards influenced by the Gee's Bend Quilters, stair railings and posts inspired by Thomas Day, and wall shelves that would fit nicely in any home in Wakanda.  Kendall was honored to have one of his original cabinets highlighted in a New York Times article.  The cabinet was called King Djoer, based on the Egyptian Pharaoh. It was  part of a special exhibit"Show Us Your Wall" featuring the work of Patrick McCoy.

Kendall was trained as a union carpenter in Chicago focusing on interior structures; custom doors, stairs, and windows. He eventually began making unique furniture. He completed a two-year program at the University of Chicago called "Protecting the Art Collection". This program enhanced his skill in presenting, mounting, crating and preserving art.  

Kendall teaches all of our Woodshop classes.  He focuses  on safety and helping the students to feel comfortable and confident on the equipment.
