Mini Woodworking Open Shop

This class is run as an open workshop in which students design and construct projects of their choice. Expert instructors provide individual guidance on design, joinery, construction and finishing, based on individual student needs, and students draw upon each other’s expertise. Students often stay for multiple semesters, enjoying the camaraderie of the shop and progressing to more ambitious projects over time. Many fine pieces of original furniture and cabinetry have come out of this class. 

Take one or more sections to create the Open Shop the experience that works best for your project and schedule. Prerequisite: Basic Woodworking. Limit 12 students
