Over two days, you will gain confidence in basic carpentry as you work on a take-home project. There will be plenty of time to practice with tools and to become familiar with terminology. You’ll learn about tool safety, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, making sketches for projects and choosing non-toxic, healthy finishes.

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!

Jen is a builder and designer with the Endeavour Centre. Deirdre is the owner of Straworks, a design-build firm based in Peterborough.
