Art School: Woodworking

Welcome to the Woodworking Department!

We focus on teaching the “fine art” of woodworking, including safety on all tools; the art of wood joinery; milling and preparing wood for student projects; and glue-ups and finishing. You will also explore the fundamentals and advanced techniques for wood turning.

We offer a range of courses focused on woodworking and woodturning. Whether you are a beginner with no previous experience or you have been doing woodworking for years, you will be able to develop and hone your skills in crafting with wood.

Our woodworking faculty have at least 20 years of experience in their respective areas of expertise who teach and fabricate woodworking projects for clients.

Our full array of woodworking tools are useful for a variety of woodworking projects at all levels. Tools include a jointer, thickness planer, two routers, drill press, detailed mortiser and an array of saws including a SawStop table saw, miter saw, radial arm, jigsaw and four Rikon midi-lathes.

Our classes are casual and fun to provide opportunities for both the true novice and the experienced woodworker! There's no pressure and classes are not project-based; you are free to design and make whatever you want or need for yourself or your home. Once comfortable with Woodworking Studio safety, students may access equipment during Open Studio hours set each term.
