Intro to the Woodshop (SCU2306.01)

Olivia Saporito

Have you ever wanted to understand how to safely build some of the most basic things and not know where to start? The course is developed for students who want to learn the fundamentals to operate the many tools and machinery the Bennington wood-shop has to offer. Students will undertake many tasks that will help develop technical skills and how to utilize the woodshop as a resource in supporting other classes in Visual Arts. This course is open to all that are curious! Processes such as joinery, shaping, planing, scraping, and laminating will be covered, as well as basic construction methods. We will undertake these methods by learning how to properly and safely use equipment and tools. Using shop tools with respect and understanding of safety procedures is required. This course is project-based and students will be evaluated on their ability to use shop tools with proficiency and respect as well as understand safety procedures.
