Teen Shop: Woodworking

Experience the creativity of working in wood with hand and power tools.

Get started in the art of wood project design, building, and painting/finishing. Learn to use basic hand tools and limited power tools. Proper attire and safety gear must be worn in class: students should dress with closed toed shoes, loose clothing tucked in, long pants, and long hair tied back. No previous experience required, all levels are welcome.

IMPORTANT: The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our #1 priority. If, due to circumstances beyond our control, it becomes necessary for Artistree to close its doors this fall, any in-progress classes will move to an online format. Our instructors and patrons will keep in mind that a transition to virtual learning is a possibility. Artistree will issue no refunds or credits for classes that cannot continue to run in person and must move to a virtual platform.
