They change frequently. New classes always in the works!

Instructors and Mentors are always needed. If you’ve got a few hours and a favored skill or project, we’ve got a few students. We especially need skilled Members to lead:

  • New Member Safety & Equipment Training (contact Richard Masterson) short sessions
  • Woodworking 101 – Wall Shelf Project – Could you just do one? We’ve made more than 80 this year and we still have a waitlist. Students are super appreciative. Your time is a great investment into the life and safety of our Shops.
  • Make it & Take it – Short 1 or 2 session projects to teach a single topic, machine or skill. Beginners love these. They fill fast.
  • Skill Clinics and Demos – 1 or 2 hour experience to inspire or provide info or practice. Please share what you are good at
  • Tutors for Turners - help beginners with guided practice after Introductory classes.
