Woodworking requires patience, care and awareness.

We work with sharp blades and moving parts. Our woodworkers must understand consequences and take responsibility for following safety practices. Using tools improperly or under the influence of alcohol or drugs may lead to serious injury so this is not accepted. We also ask that you not attempt any technique unless you fully understand it. If you are unsure of something, it is always OK to ask questions, even if you feel a bit silly. It is our role to provide you with instruction, so rely on us for assistance and guidance. There are no stupid questions.

We will ask you to sign a liability awareness and release form before beginning any workshop so that we know you are aware of any risks and your responsibilities to yourself, your classmates and the Studio.
