Event description

Description

**Note this workshop takes place over two sessions: 1) Saturday 9am–1pm; 2) Sunday 10am–3pm.


We invite all people to learn woodworking techniques, practices, and resources in an environment that strives to be free of oppression. Our goal is to carve out safe(r) space for self-identified women, gender nonconforming folks, people of colour, and any others that have felt unwelcome or faced barriers to accessing predominantly male woodworking spaces. We prioritize the comfort and well-being of each participant. Our focus is safety, accessibility and inclusivity.

In this workshop you will learn to use a variety of machines including the Jointer, Planer, Tablesaw, Chopsaw, Router Table and Sanders. There will be a dedicated health and safety demo for each of these machines. You will learn the basic techniques and procedures used in the making of a cutting board which are applicable to many other projects. Participants will be leaving with a cutting board made out of maple and cherry and finished with mineral oil or beeswax.

This is a introduction to woodworking workshop which will teach participants how to use a variety of machines used in the milling of wood, cutting/ shaping and finishing. All techiques learned in the workshop can be used to make other projects in the future. Those inclued milling, machining, measuring, marking, making profiles, sanding and finishing.
