Elementary Makers Studio

Woodworking with tools can be extremely creative and satisfying. This hands-on class will introduce campers to a variety of tools needed to build with wood: clamps, hand saws, electric drills, hammers, chisels, and more. This class is a great start for folks with little or no woodworking experience. We will practice woodworking skills by working on small group projects around a theme (e.g., furniture, carnival games, etc.) and a large group project that will culminate in a miniature golf course. Prior to working with tools, we will have an orientation on woodworking safety. Registration covers the cost of materials.
