    Beginners Welcome

    When you want your joints and finished surfaces to come out just right, there’s no substitute for a perfectly sharp edge.  In this class, you’ll learn how to create and maintain one on chisels and plane irons. We’ll start with a bit of theory, and introduce the basic tool kit, but most of the time will be devoted to turning neglected edges into gleaming blades.  You are welcome to bring your own tools and waterstones, but the HatchSpace will also have on hand everything you need for the class.


    Saturday, June 26, 2021    9am-12:00 noon  

     $45

    Financial aid available upon request.

    Beginners Welcome

    This class is a three hour hands-on workshop designed for high school students and adults. Using a web-based CNC software platform that allows participants to design and carve from a single program, you'll learn the basics of three dimensional design. Easy to use and requiring no prior knowledge, participants will design a 6 x 6" two color mosaic tile of  2-color HDPE plastic in Easel to learn CNC basics.  Students can personalize their project and bring it to life by manufacturing on our X-Carve machine, a computer numerical controlled machine (CNC).  Learn Easel and X-Carve and transfer your skills to carving on wood or other materials.   Check out projects online to see the possibilities.  

    Class limited to 5 students.  It would be beneficial if participants bring their own laptop with free Easel account established.  (Laptop can be provided if needed)

    $45.00

The hands-on, direct learning approach includes safety, setup, design considerations, and tool selection. This is an excellent opportunity to take the mystery out of turning and serves as a springboard to make your creations come to life.

    Tools and materials are provided.
