Education Team hopes you all had a great summer.
We’ve been busy getting ready. We really need some help!

Let’s help our Members to work toward their woodworking goals in both safe and enjoyable ways:

  • Acclimate our new and returning woodworkers to safely use our equipment. (Be kind to your machine and colleagues!)
  • Give all our colleagues and beginners safe ways to learn new skills through classes, clinics and guided practice projects
  • Help skilled members to advance to new heights and projects

Please consider how you can ‘give back’ or ‘pay it forward’ by:

  • Teaching or assisting with a class – existing ones need back-ups and we have gaps to fill (Scrollsaw anyone?!)
  • Mentoring one on one or small groups– you pick the skill, project, equipment, time . . .
  • Being the “Mentor on duty” by hanging at the Shop for a few hours to assist and encourage colleagues as they work on projects
  • Planning, demonstrating or teaching through any Make it & Take it short projects or Skill Clinics
  • Hosting, assisting or helping with logistics or clerical needs for any of the above
  • Have an idea? We have an ear and an open mind . . .

There are still open classes, and more spots are added weekly. Get in before the super busy season!

Use the Website, especially the videos and Class Info. There is SOOOOO much there!!
