About this event

Brag to your friends Nick Offerman has nothing on you. In this workshop you will select, plan, and construct your own bench from reclaimed wood. The instructor will guide you through all things safety related so you can confidently build your bench and develop woodworking skills. You will make measurements, cuts, and assemble a work of art your behind will surely enjoy. No prior experience is necessary and equipment is provided.

Note: If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate! Email us at workshops@rebuildingexchange.org to ask.

STUDENT SAFETY DURING COVID

Your safety is our highest priority at Rebuilding Exchange, so we have put safety protocols in place for all of our in-person workshops to keep everyone safe. Those protocols are:

  • Reduced class sizes (no more than 8 participants in a class).
  • All instructors, assistants, and participants will be required to wear masks while attending workshops (we do not have enough masks to provide to everyone, so you will be required to provide your own mask).
  • Instructors and participants may be required to have their temperature taken (using a touchless thermometer) prior to the start of the class.
  • Social distancing will be implemented when possible and appropriate.
  • Breaks will be provided during the class for handwashing.
  • Everyone should follow recommended safety precautions, such as coughing into your elbow and refraining from touching their face.
  • All of the tools, equipment, door handles, cabinet and drawer handles, etc. that are touched will be disinfected both before and after the workshop.

Organizer Rebuilding Exchange

Organizer of Make It Take It Class: Bench

 

Established in 2009, Rebuilding Exchange is a nonprofit social enterprise that repurposes building materials that would otherwise devalue a community and provides job training for people with barriers to employment, making a commitment to education and economic development in Chicago's underserved communities.

 

Rebuilding Exchange has four distinct social enterprise areas that achieve our mission. Our 25,000 square foot retail warehouse provides affordable reclaimed building materials to the general public. Our public workshops educate Chicago-area residents on how to use reclaimed materials and live more sustainably. RX Made, our in-house custom fabrication workshop, demonstrates the potential reuse of our materials through the creation of beautiful, repurposed furniture. Our employment training program provides opportunities for Chicagoans with barriers to employment to earn transferable skills and certifications through on-the-job training and find pathways to permanent employment.
