    No Woodworking Experience Required

    This beginning woodworking class offers an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of building furniture. Through the creation of a Side Table, students will be guided through every aspect of project building, from initial design to final finish. We will cover the safe and thoughtful use of all the power tools in the HatchSpace machine room, with particular attention paid to the milling process (jointer, planer, table saw,) as well as a wide range of hand tools and techniques. Numerous design possibilities will be presented, and students will be encouraged to think creatively. Instruction will rely primarily on demonstrations, class discussions, in-class work time, and will even include a field trip to a local lumber yard.

    Cost of materials not included.

    8 sessions:  Tuesdays,  September 21 - November 9.

    Class time:  6-9 PM. 

    $400

    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    Blake started his woodworking career in a teaching environment, at art college, and hasn’t let that learning/teaching thing go ever since.  He has built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  He appreciates making for himself, and loved ones, objects that evoke joy and character for years to come. He loves the process of making things, the mental machinations, the problem-solving, and the many discoveries that come while working with a natural material. Each project becomes a process of getting to know the work, the wood, and in some ways, a bit of himself. This sense of empowerment and responsibility to a personal environment is something he hopes to spread in every place where he works. Some photos of his work can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and on Instagram at @runeshai.
