Carpentry is designed to teach boys and girls practical woodworking skills with an emphasis on the safe use of hand tools. Through building a variety of fun projects, children learn a wide range of valuable carpentry skills such as measuring, sawing, drilling, rasping, fastening, sanding, shaping, assembly, and painting. After first building a sanding block and a supertop, kids may choose from a wide variety of fun projects including boats, clocks, games, trucks, dolls, furniture and more. New projects for returning kids! Hand in hand with the practical skills goes a wide variety of other valuable concepts such as abstract reasoning, applied mathematics, problem solving, craftsmanship, fine motor skills, respect for tools, and patience. Kids' Carpentry class is held once per week on Fridays from 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM. Classes begin Friday, September 7th and run till Friday, November 16th.
