TEEN WOODWORKING – SHOP CLASS
Minimum age 14 – 17 yrs
Our fully equipped shop is the scene of creative, engineering, and practical skill building work for 5 hours of instruction every day as well for free time. The skills your teen will learn here, will last a life time.
Parents this class is open both girls and boys. No knowledge is required and the class is well supervised by two senior instructors.
In this hands-on class, you will learn how to use power tools like the chop saw and bandsaw and turn on a wood lathe. Students will do a variety of projects through the week such as making a cutting board, making a table etc.
Supervision ratio is high and we stress safety above all else. Students may use power tools only after they have been instructed in their safe and proper use, have spent time observing instructors in their safe and proper use, and can demonstrate to their instructors their ability to use the power tools safely themselves, including the use of protective eye gear and hearing protection.
Students should plan on bringing their own lunch and a water bottle.
There is an hour break for lunch and students will only be allowed to leave the premises with written approval from a parent.
Class starts at 9am but students can arrive as early as 8:30am. Class ends at 4:00pm and students must be picked up by 4:30pm.
Students will be allowed to check their cell phones during the three breaks during the day. Parents should call the School line at 813 223 3490 during class time so as not to disturb the student while using machinery.
