Woodworking - Course Description

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Students use traditional woodworking techniques and methods of joinery in the context of modern design. They consider the importance and logic of traditional building techniques and handcraft in everyday objects and their environments. The class emphasises creating quality craft with basic hand tools. The students work individually or in groups to design and build a functional object, with both structural and artistic integrity. They learn to properly and safely use hand and machine tools, including pull saws, chisels, squares, stationary drill press, and band saw.
