Woodwork for Women View details

Do something different, learn new skills and change old attitudes, this course encourages students to choose a small project, design & construct it, while learning how to use tools and improve techniques in a helpful, friendly atmosphere with attention to Health & Safety at all times. Students will work together to check techniques for accuracy & results for squareness & a good fit, learning from each other while critically assessing their own work for improvements. There will be frequent 'problem solving' examples & techniques, which are intended to help students gain skills in planning a job from start to finish. Re-purposing is encouraged, reducing & re-using waste. Advice on suitable projects will be given & constraints on size, cost, skill levels required influence project choices. Students comment that learning in a co-operative working group, where differences are respected and equality matters, make this course a valuable 'social occasion.'
