The Fundamentals of Woodworking

Summer Skill Share

Saturday June 10, 10am-5pm
Main Room

For any female (12 & up) who would like to learn some woodworking skills, this class will set you up with the basics of woodworking techniques, tools, vocabulary and materials. We will learn by doing! During this workshop we will make a small 9″L x 5″W x 3″H box that can be used to store small items, treasures or maybe your secrets and provide you with knowledge that will hopefully propel you further into the world of woodworking.

6 attendees maximum.

WCCW will supply the following, but if you have them you may bring:
– 1” x 4” x 8′ lumber
– glue
– clear coat finish
– safety glasses
– foam brushes
– sand paper

Makes sure you also have:
– hair tie for those with hair past their earlobes
– closed-toe shoes
– no dangling bracelets or necklaces

The Neverending Balloon is a design+build studio specializing in carefully considered, handmade objects ranging from residential and commercial furniture and fixture, to educational tools for non-profit organizations. The female-centric studio is led by Michele Liu, who is a graduate of Otis College of Art & Design and Design Academy Eindhoven, concentrates on how our built environment influences our daily lives.

The NEB pays homage to the old school way of thinking and doing where everything is designed in-house with hand drawings and handmade scaled models. The designs are then fabricated by Michele alongside other highly skilled craftswomen from ethically sourced materials, ensuring that everything is made with the utmost attention and that the studio does not contribute to the culture of throwaway goods.
