Course Details

Tuesdays, Jan 8 - Feb 12 | 6:30-9:30pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/CW-WOOD-0838 ( Class is almost Full )
6 sessions | 18 contact hours | tuition $365 | lab fee $50


Description

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of working with wood using power and hand tools. Step by step, students learn the safe and effective use of machinery, and how to develop and execute a realistic plan/design for a piece. Students are introduced to ways of understanding wood, both in what to look for in selecting it and considerations when shaping it, and work with table saws, band saws, joiners, planers and sanders, learning which machines are most effective in achieving their chosen project. Demonstrations and presentations further the learning. This hands-on introductory class helps students gain confidence with machines and is ideal for beginners. Please note that in addition to the lab fee, you can expect to have to buy additional supplies for this course. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized courses (jewelry, wood, metals) this may be higher.

Applies to: PM-E
