Event description

Description

Consider yourself a real Ron Swanson but no room to have your own workshop? Use ours! No prior experience woodworking? No problem! We are proud to offer Open Shop, where you’ll have 3 hours to work on whatever tickles your fancy (all projects subject to instructor approval).

Our instructors will be there to show you how to use the equipment, supervise to make sure you leave with all your fingers and toes, and provide direction if you need an expert opinion. All skill levels are welcome, but we cannot guarantee that your project will be finished in only 3 hours. Unless arrangements have been made to store your materials here, you’ll have to take your project home with you and come back to finish up at another Open Shop session.

Materials are not included in the price of Open Shop, but we are happy to offer a 20% discount. We recommend showing up an hour early to pick out materials and prepare to work.

Note: If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate Email us to ask.
