Walker’s Woodshop

Ages: entering grades 4 through 7 in September 2018
Hours: 9:00 am-4:00 pm

If your child looks at a two-by-four and can see a dresser drawer, then it’s time to roll up his or her sleeves and join in. Our introduction to woodworking teaches your child the fundamentals of good design and encourages personal expression. Situated in our fully equipped woodshop within the Visual and Performing Arts Center, each camper will choose, plan and build a unique piece of small furniture. Guided by two experienced instructors, your child will develop skills in design, measurement, construction and finishing techniques. Beginning woodworkers will learn how to safely handle a variety of tools, receive one-on-one attention and, at the end of the week, walk away with a finely-crafted piece of furniture and the confidence that comes from knowing it was created with his or her own two hands.
