Class Experience

1. Learners will identify tools, parts of tools, and functions of tools.
2. Learners will understand safety rules.
3. Learners will discover tips to use tools efficiently.
My “Hammer, Saw, Drill” woodworking courses have been widely successful with homeschool groups, in classrooms and grant-funded residencies for people with disabilities, in small-group classes in community centers, and with builders ages 2 to 100 in an intergenerational program. I created the woodworking book "Hammer, Saw, Drill: Woodworking Together" in collaboration with 40 preschool children.

The curriculum is designed to empower learners of all ages and abilities, building confidence and independence through hands-on woodworking skills, the responsible use of tools, and the promotion of creativity and problem solving. 

I have 26 years experience as an art educator, and have earned both an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts with teaching licensure, and an MA in Early Childhood Education.

My approach to teaching focuses on nurturing individuality, creativity and discovery to help learners develop skills that enhance self-esteem. I love seeing how woodworking helps learners focus, brings them joy, and builds confidence. I keep all of my classes small in order to best assist each learner.
Already have a hammer, nails, scrap wood, and sandpaper? Or any of the other tools shown in the video? Feel free to gather them and join along as I demonstrate! No tools yet? That's okay. You can still watch, learn, and ask questions. ​
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
An adult is required to supervise young builders while they learn how to use tools safely.
