Kids Only - Slöjd in the Wood Shop

Course Overview

This kid’s course is meant as an introduction to the various hand tools and simple skills involved in working with wood. The course is co-taught by a father and son team, Paul Linden and Avery Carlson. We will start with an introduction to common tools, stressing safety for both the child and the tools. Then we will make a coat hook/peg board, students will design their own and finish/paint/decorate them as they see fit. Following the Slöyd education model, the instructor will not touch the student’s work unless specifically requested, allowing them to complete the project wholly by themselves. We hope that this course will serve as either an empowering start or an invigorating catalyst to a lifelong relationship with hand tools and craftwork.

This class is for kids only, ages 10+.
