Introduction To Carpentry Workshop


Workshop Instructor(s): Jen Feigin & Shane MacInnes

Entry Requirements – Open to all


Ever wanted to tackle a project but don’t know quite where to start or are you looking to gain more confidence with using power tools?  In our two-day Introduction to Carpentry workshop, you will gain confidence in basic carpentry skills as you work on a take-home project. In a friendly and encouraging environment, you will be introduced to terminology and learn tool safety, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, measuring marking and layout. There is plenty of time for you to practice with tools and become comfortable in the workshop.


The small group learning will afford lots of time to ask questions and discuss ideas.


Each participant will construct and bring home a pair of folding saw horses that can be used as a work platform for future projects or as a base for a desk!


The excitement and pride of learning to work with wood and tools is infectious! You’ll be set to take on projects of your own with confidence and skill.



Includes healthy lunch (vegan and vegetarian options available)


Includes course materials. Each participant will bring home a set of folding sawhorses!
