Kids Carpentry

Age 5-12
with John Tust, www.KidsCarpentry.com
Since 1982 we have taught thousands of children the safe-use of woodworking with hand-tools. After first building a sanding block and supertop, kids may choose from a wide variety of fun projects including: boats, clocks, games, trucks, doll furniture, and many more. While building their projects from scratch, children are introduced to concepts of applied math, problemsolving, fine motor skills, and empowered to become independent thinkers. Our motto: Building confidence and teaching with respect and humor in a safe and happy environment. Lab Fee: $40 payable to instructor.
