  1. Foundations of Woodworking

    January 6, 2020 - March 27, 2020

    This course drills deep into the basics, beginning with a firm foundation in understanding wood as a material and incorporates introductory training in a wide range of techniques. The curriculum focuses on imparting skills through a series of projects designed to build on one another in techniques and complexity. After twelve weeks, you'll leave with an in-depth experience of hand tools; having practiced applications of joinery methods, considered choices for wood selection and worked with non-toxic materials. And you’ll understand practical planning for designing and executing woodworking projects.

  2. Introduction to Furniture: Design and Technique

    January 6, 2020 - March 27, 2020

    This class is open to woodworkers who would like to broaden their approach to furniture making. We think it means you are a person who has decided to commit to learning furniture making; is yearning to develop a finer sense of design; has already acquired some woodworking skills and has a strong sense of the limitations of your own knowledge and skills. You must have some experience in hand tool woodworking, finer machine work and basic design before taking this class. If you have limited woodworking experience - we’d like you to produce evidence of strong practical skills, problem solving ability, and experience with hand work.

  3. Cartooning 101 with Jim Bradrick

    February 20, 2020 - March 26, 2020

    Cartooning is not a lesser art than realistic drawing; it is an approach to drawing that teaches you to observe and then translate your ideas in unique ways. And, let’s don’t forget: it can make people laugh or smile when it hits the mark. The class will examine and critique the drawings of many cartoonists, great and obscure.
