||Level: Level I
"Working with Hand Tools and Small Power Tools"
Our Woodworking for Women program is run by Martha Collins. Martha runs a successful business making wonderful turned jewellry and tableware; in a prior life she ran a furniture shop.
Martha's classes provide a supportive well equipped environment for women to explore woodworking.
Martha's aims to give you a good basic knowledge of woodworking by focusing on techniques.
This class starts by teaching you joinery with hand tools. You learn to use chisels, handplanes and Japanese hand saws to create lap joints and mortice and tenon joints.
As the week progresses Martha adds working with hand power tools into the mix. You can explore techniques and approaches for projects that you want to work on at home.
The course content is open ended and you can discuss with Martha what you'd like to learn. The course includes a trip to Edensaw (our local lumberyard) to demystify the process of buying good wood.
The school's workbenches are fully equipped with hand tools and there is an extensive collection of teaching tools. You do not need to bring any tools along. However if you do have some tools feel free to bring them along. Check with Martha if you have questions.
