Independent Wood Project
This class is for experienced woodworkers. During the study hours, you will have access to our woodshop to create your own small to medium projects, such as a jewellery box, step stool, side tables, serving trays etc. The woodshop instructor will be present to provide guidance through the necessary steps and will demonstrate techniques according to individual needs. Students must have a complete design, as well as provide their own materials. You will need to transport your materials to and from the shop for each study period (you will not be able to store your projects in the shop). If you require specialty tools, you may have to provide them yourself. There will be a mandatory orientation of the woodshop tools and rules during your first time slot.
