    Introduction to Woodworking: Building Your Way

    As a maker, I’ve found the most meaning and satisfaction in creating things from my own mind for my own life.  Used every day, items from shelves to decorative cabinets to handheld implements, my life is full with my own creations, each serving as a reminder of its process.  In my Introduction to Woodworking class you will learn the basic properties of working with wood, fundamentals and safety when working with hand and machine tools, and principles and techniques used to brainstorm, design, and make real something you can use in your life. Covered will be the major workhorses of the wood shop: table saw, jointer, planer, miter saw. Come equipped with ideas and any related images, and we’ll begin the maker’s journey together.

    No experience necessary.

    Cost of materials not included. 

    Open to any adult 18 or over.

    Eight weeks. Mondays,April 13-June 8, 2020- 6:30-9 PM

    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    From all-hand-tool timberframing in rural Poland, to machining sheets of sparkly pink plexiglass for a set of fashion show stages, I am always keen to learn and try something new.  I've built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  I collect skills and techniques to inform my sense of how to build a world I'd like to live in.  Creating objects is as much a process of making as using; something leaving the workshop enters my life in a new way, living and changing with me over time.  This sense of empowerment and responsibility to our own environment is something I hope to spread in every place that I can teach.  My portfolio can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and I am on Instagram as @runeshai.
