NOTE: Our SUMMER PROGRAM for CHILDREN is canceled, along with all SPRING In-House classes.
Kids' Woodworking Ages 9-12 3W20
Children learn basic woodworking skills starting with simple projects, using hand tools. Continuing students undertake larger and more complex projects, gaining appreciation for wood as a creative medium. New projects each section. Children will love to come back again and again as their skills and comfort increase. Parents are welcome to stay if they wish.
