Event description

Description

In this class you'll learn how to make a wooden pen. All materals are included, and you'll even take home your own handmade bpen!

Topics covered include:

  • Safety (important!)
  • Bowlturning tools
  • Turning endgrain
  • Woodturning Technique

Our maximum class size is 2 people, so you will get lots of 1 on 1 instruction. This is a safe and welcoming place for anyone to learn -- including women, people of color, or gender-nonconforming folks. NOTES: Please wear close-toed shoes and remove any dangling jewelry or clothing items (like hoodie strings) before joining class. Safety first! A water bottle will also be helpful to stay hydrated (there's filtered water and ice available).

FAQs

What is the location like?

The woodshop is in a shipping container parked at NIMBY. NIMBY is a functioning, grungy, non-fancypants makerspace full of working people. Expect to get dirty, see people getting dirty, and experience dirt and grime. Bathroom included.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Driving: There is ample and free street parking on Amelia Street. Please don't leave valuables visible and lock your vehicle.

Public Transportation: The nearest BART station is the Coliseum station. We can't offer a ride from BART, but you can grab a cab or rideshare service from the station. It's just a 5 minute drive from Coliseum BART to NIMBY.

Rideshare: Cabs, Lyft or Uber can easily find NIMBY using the street address. NIMBY is at the end of Amelia Street.
