An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until June 22, 2018
Students in the K – 1 woodworking camps will be exposed to many of the basic tools used to create projects at the SHW. Squares and rulers, files, rasps and sandpaper, planes, hand drills, screw drivers, and of course, hammers and nails are all used . Through interactive demonstrations and practice, children are constantly working on the processes used to join, shape, and surface wood. They will create projects specifically designed for young hands and will work at their own pace in a fun and upbeat environment – one where safety is consistently reinforced and the basics of good craftsmanship are introduced right away. Emphasis here is on techniques and exploration of the medium, and is not always project-based. What a great way to start a love of woodworking!
