Begin your woodworking experience in this introduction to tools and techniques. We will cover the basics of wood technology, what hand tools and power tools to use, how to use them, and how to care for them, as well as an intro to finishing, and a discussion of joinery vs. structure. Bring a notebook and comfortable shoes, as this will be a fast-paced, hands-on overview.

Teacher Bio: Michael Bray
I feel the strongest connection to functional art. My spoon carving is the purest expression of this aesthetic, but I try to imbue all my functional work with beauty. As a teacher I think it is important to share my love and enthusiasm for making objects of use and meaning.
