Fine Arts Institute - Woodworking for Beginners & Veterans with Lynn Sweet
Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 6:00pm to 9:00pm
SAVS/School for Art & Visual Studies, Art Gallery 114
*Students who sign up for this class that have not taken the Woodworking Class taught by Lynn Sweet before are considered Beginners no matter what their skill level is. If you have taken the Beginner's class, then you should register for the Woodworking for Veterans class. Beginners: Dust off your shop apron and prepare to learn basic hand-made woodworking joinery and its applications in furniture building. In addition to an emphasis on traditional woodworking joinery, contemporary techniques will be explored as well as sharpening, simple drafting and plane-craft. The proper use of hand and power equipment will be emphasized. Veterans: Often folks having taken the Beginner’s class desire to continue taking further instruction and make use of the shop. These are our ‘Veterans’. Though veteran students are also required to participate in the orientation on the first night, these students are not required to take part in the joinery exercises that absorb several early classes. Instead veteran students can proceed to projects that have been permitted, though they are still under supervision. It should be stated that veteran students work more independently using techniques absorbed in the initial class, allowing the instructor to concentrate on the safety and instruction of the students in the beginner’s class. Please note that this class runs for 13 weeks to facilitate completion of projects. Please be present at the first class to participate in mandatory power tool orientation. Failure to be present for the orientation will result in a cancellation of your registration.
