Training / Skill Development
Woodshop training is provided in the context of School curricula. Most students’ first contact with the Woodshop is through an introductory course within their program. These introductory courses schedule class time in the Woodshop to discuss and practice safe wood working skills specific to a field of study. These skills may be building a canvas stretching frame or panel, building a series of small tables, exploring negative and positive space through construction / deconstruction of a series of cubes, among many others.
Typically a student’s first visit to the Woodshop includes an introduction to safe practices and conduct given by the instructional technician. The student will also fill out paperwork to register as a current user of the Woodshop.
