Woodworking enables us to work together and build community. It provides a link to the past while also allowing for the development of new world skills. It connects us to ourselves through exploration and expression.
Woodworking offers a CONNECTION to each other, to the past, to oneself and enhances social emotional skills
When people are given real tools and take on the challenge to accomplish meaningful tasks they become empowered.
