Woodworking classes for Adults and High Schoolers

High school and adult classes focus on developing confidence to tackle home and creative projects via a highly tactile experience. Using hand tools additionally offers presence of mind which we have found is a nice alternative to the intense, screen based days we have.

Working with Tyler C. Merson, a professional cabinet maker, you will learn the true essentials of woodworking.  While you will make a wooden mallet, this course is about the journey and how to simplify the process so you can become a confident woodworker.
