Woodworking

We offer woodworking classes at all experience levels, for adults, teens and kids.

Adults design and make furniture, cabinetry and other objects:

  • Basic Woodworking: Box is a prerequisite for many classes.
  • Intermediate Woodworking classes reinforce basic skills.
  • Woodworking Open Shop follows an open format: Work on your own projects, at your own pace, with instructors' guidance.
  • Additional classes offer a myriad other skills: wood turning, carving, joinery and more.

  • Scroll down for upcoming classes in chronological order.
  • Classes for children and teens are marked by age. All other classes are for adults.
