Woodworking Workshop: Candle Holders with Mutual Adoration
Saturday June 25 from 3pm to 6pm
Entry Level Class - No experience necessary however you must be 18 or older.
Learn basic woodworking skills while creating a functional and beautiful candle holder. This make + take workshop offers a general overview of wood crafting, while you create a unique project. These look great on a dining table or sitting atop a mantle!
During this hands-on workshop, students will learn wood shop safety, proper tool operations, and then will be guided through the project. We will be using hand and power tools to cut, sand, drill, paint, stain, and finish locally sourced reclaimed wood to create tea light candle holders.
Everyone will create their choice of individual blocks or a single long plank, made to hold 5 candles. The candle holders may be painted or left in a more natural finish - you choose!
Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Stain, paint, and finishing oils will stain your clothing! All students must wear closed toe shoes for this workshop.
COVID-19 POLICY - We are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative test result from within three days prior to the class and to accept all requests of both POST and the instructor concerning mask wearing.
