Focus Information


Experience the design methods for crafting simply plain yet elegant items. Cutting boards, planters, small benches. Made from real materials – wood and metal. Hand-crafted by you. Use essential tools – a bandsaw, a table saw, a joiner. Students learn how to handle these and more the proper way in the shop. Safety is paramount to our instructors – we educate students in the importance and methods of safety and protection as they make their crafts. Students take their crafts home with them when the course is over. The goods they make can easily be sold when finished – it’s up for them to decide whether they want to.
