Attended: Introduction to Modern Woodworking


The intro to woodworking class was pretty cool. There were 6 students total, so we each had enough time to practice working the various machinery, and I like the stool that I brought home! The only downside was that the class ran over by an hour, which totally affected my plans for the rest of the day. I would have appreciated if the class time had been advertised as such, or if we worked on a project that would have taken less time, or if there was a disclaimer that warned us that there could be a delay (I had accounted for an extra half hour, but that wasn't enough!) I also wish we had enough time to finish the stool more rather than keep it in its raw pine form.

Enjoyed a lot. Getting basic skillls and knowledge about wood working. I got to use different types of tools used in wood working and love the final outcome of class.

Class listing needs to be updated to reflect that the class actually goes from 1PM to 5PM.

Megan Isaacs is a brilliant and patient teacher. She clearly explains each objective, demonstrates how it's done then personally guides you through each step. She always makes sure that the students are hands on with all tools and materials. She deals with any student error patiently and professionally. The result? A perfect sterling silver ring that my wife shows off to everyone. Nobody believes that I did it all on my own- but I did with Megan's expert guidance.

Josh did an excellent job making the class engaging and fun. You leave with a beautiful frame using a technique not even frame shops use any more.

Attended: Introduction to Metal Fabrication


This was a really fun class and Evan was great. The class could be a bit smaller though, as the actual welding equipment was a big bottleneck.
