This week we started the July courses with two new groups of enthousiasts. The participants have very diverse professional backgrounds – from banking to science, from law courts to NGOs – but share a desire to get creative with their hands and acquire artisanal skills. Many of them also mention that they are drawn to woodworking because of the beauty of solid wood as a material. We couldn’t agree more.
This week’s session was all about the first steps of a woodworking project: designing, measuring, and marking the wood. The participants were also informed about the various types of wood joints and for what situations and purposes they are suited for. In next week’s session they will learn how to cut some of these wood joints.
