This Autumn, join us as we learn to cast concrete for furniture makers! The workshop will cover silicone moldmaking and concrete basics: techie stuff and hands on mixing and casting of a flat surface (like a table or furniture top); a 3-D object; and something spooky. Students will get their hands dirty, learn the basics, and come away with an object.

Sun Oct 20 9am-4pm, concrete time!

Cutting Board Class Fall 2017
This is a great class for students looking for an introduction to our facilities and to working with wood in general. This class also counts toward safety certification on some of our more advanced equipment, for use during Open Shop Hours. Students go home with a cutting board and experience milling wood from rough lumber, using most of the tools in the woodshop.
Open to all skill levels.

This class will take you from concept to finished print. You will draw/transfer your design onto a wood block, and carve out with handheld gouge tools. Then, you will learn how to ink and hand burnish onto paper.
