Woodwork for Humans

Woodwork for Humans is for students who wants to learn about traditional hand tool woodworking.

It's a great opportunity for students to learn about different woodworking techniques that could be applicable in other parts of life such as reading prints and laying out as well as beginning the journey for a lifelong hobby.

Hosted at Rosmini College after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (separate sessions) from 3.30 to 4.45.

It will consist of 1 session a week through the term. Students will end up with a project they can be proud of and take home.

Places are limited to 16 spots on each days but anyone with a positive attitude is welcome.

All tools and materials are provided for.

In Term 2 we will be making a traditionally jointed stool similar to the one pictured below, though specific style may change.
