Do you have a child that likes to create objects out of wood? Our founder, Reverend Lynwood Smith recognized the value of teaching kids how to live a well-crafted life when he began the Shelburne Craft School with afterschool woodworking over 75 years ago. Join our legacy by learning how to make a one of a kind functional object that will be enjoyed for years to come! Students ages 10-14 will learn from a woodworking professional in our charming historic light-filled woodshop about shop safety and how to use a wide variety of hand tools such as files, rasps, and wood burners. Your child will gain confidence making creative decisions in an atmosphere that is fun and supportive. At the end of the course they will go home with a valuable skill set and an amazing project.
This is an in-person course. We require masks and social distancing at all times. Our classroom is set up for distanced stations. We require a health screen and temperature check when students arrive on campus, as well as frequent handwashing and sanitizing. Students are asked to not come to campus if they are exhibiting any signs of illness.
Students should bring their own ear/eye protection, bring a water bottle, wear close toed shoes and their masks.
