Working with Wood - A Beginners' Workshop
Is your home furnished with the same IKEA pieces as everyone else? When was the last time you actually built something that you had the idea for? This 1.5 day workshop (10 hours) is for anyone who wants to create something with their own hands and connect with their inner carpenter.
Friday (3 Hours): 18:00 - 21:00h
Saturday (7 Hours): 11:00 - 18:00h
In this beginners' course, we will introduce you to the tools in our workshop (we work with Festool) and give you the opportunity to complete a project of your own design.
With the help of WWA teachers, you will take your idea from concept to completion alongside a small group of likeminded people (max. 10). The workshop includes time to conceptualize and draft your own idea. You can create anything from small tables, to nightstands, to laptop stands, to meditation seats. Anything you can create within the workshop schedule with the materials given and beginner’s skill level is possible! Throughout the workshop, we will help you create your ideal piece and you’ll finish the class with your own self-built piece of furniture.
In addition, you will be introduced to working with machines -- table saws, bandsaws, mitre (or drop saw), press drills, and sanders -- along with a range of other equipment in the workshop. You will be able to safely use them for your own projects after this workshop.
