Teen Woodworking II - Ages 14-17

Teen Woodworking II Eliot School

For students who have taken Teen Woodworking I for several semesters and are ready for the next level. Increase your skills and your comfort with tools and processes. Begin to design your own projects. As you continue to further semesters, increase your projects' elegance and complexity. Two classes each term focus on wood turning with artisan Ken Lindgren.

Students in this class have won Honorable Mention in the national Scholastic Art Awards, and have had their furniture exhibited with work by Eastern Massachusetts Guild of Woodworkers. They have worked as aides in our Summer Program for Children, and applied to college to study architecture and engineering.

By instructor's permission only.

The first session each term will be a field trip related to furniture construction and design.ea<!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Cambria Math"; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:1; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-format:other; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:0 0 0 0 0 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:Cambria; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Cambria; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} @page WordSection1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.WordSection1 {page:WordSection1;} -->
