About the Program
The Fine Woodworking program teaches students standards of fine craftsmanship, inspired design, and an entrepreneurial spirit for a woodworking venture.
The coursework includes a strong emphasis on design, construction techniques, and problem solving. Students learn a blend of machinery skills and traditional hand-tool expertise.
The Fine Woodworking program features:
- Well equipped studios with modern machinery and hand tools comparable with those used in a small woodworking business.
- Small class size assures individual attention.
- Courses taught by accomplished woodworking professionals, Monday through Saturday, morning, afternoon, and evening.
Students are prepared for self-employment, for positions in the craft industry, or for continued study toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year institution.
