Practice and Progress - Making a Wall Hanging Shelf
Saturday 12 November 2022, 2:30pm - 4:29pm
$250 for 5 workshops. Book here.
Following on from our very popular Introduction to the Wood Workshop series, we like to think of this as our ‘level 2’ workshop. We’ve designed it to provide you with the opportunity to practice woodwork/DIY skills as well as learn new ones, all whilst making something practical.
It’s suitable for women wishing to upskill and those who want to continue their new journey into the world of woodwork after completing our ‘Intro’ series.
It is a unique opportunity to be both creative whilst learning and embedding existing skills, in a supportive and friendly women-only environment at our unrivalled extensive Auckland workshop.
Tools and machinery available to use include the skilsaw, dropsaw, benchsaw, router, chisels, planer/thicknesser, jigsaws, drill press, electric and hand planes, sanders, etc
All workshop PPE (eye, ear, respiratory protection) will be available but you are welcome to bring your own.
