In this class, we will learn the fundamentals of woodturning by creating mallets to learn basic shapes. Each camper will get to design their own project and practice turning legs, including wedging through mortise & tenon joints to make their very own stool.
This camp goes from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm each day (July 9-11).
Ages 7-12. No previous experience necessary. We will provide safety gear; just be ready to get a little dusty!
Please notify us of any participant allergies or other relevant medical information by emailing email@example.com.
